Spring Butterflies by Laura Bomber.

I asked to Laura to work with my Butterflies Sheets and here is the stunning creation by Laura Bomber(directly from her amazing blog) ,,,sorry for the late exposure ,I was some problems with my computer.

 I chose three butterflies with shades of blue and peach in their wings and this set the colour scheme...

First I dabbed some Weathered Wood and Picket Fence DP onto the craft mat and used a sponge to dab a mix of these paints onto a Tim Holtz Lattice Stencil. I then got some white card and pressed it down onto the stencil to get a reverse stencil print. 

When this was dry I covered the card with Weathered Wood, Tea Dye and Peacock Feathers DI.
I then stamped some text and script stamps using Weathered Wood DI and Potting Soil Archival ink

I stamped some butterfly and dragonfly images using Weathered Wood and Tea Dye DI

I stamped a butterfly quote onto white card, dabbed some Weathered Wood, Tea Dye and Peacock Feathers DI and edged it with Walnut Stain DI. I then layered it onto some more card covered with  Tea Dye DI

I cut the butterflies out and edged them with Walnut Stain very lightly - just to take away the white cut edges of the paper.

The antennae were too difficult to cut, so I replaced them with brown wire

So there is one of my (rare) cards....Hope you like it!

Beatrix Potter Coasters

Beatrix Potter Coasters

Astrid Mclean was working with my Peter Rabbit Cliparts.so directly from her blog" My  grandaughter in law requested a set of coasters and place mats so they can play (and learn) at setting the table.

Well, I could not refuse that, so here you are, a set of coasters with (more or less) matching place mats, using some of the wonderful Nicecrane images I still had in my collection from the time I was on his design 

The illustrations are of course by Beatrix Potter, but Nicecrane has a number of collections using these images.The coasters are all altered beer mats, using his ATC collections.

I printed them on mat photo paper in their original size, glued them onto the beer mats and then used gesso, paints, stamps and stencils to blend them onto the beer mats. This was actually quite tricky as the beer mats are of course a different size.

I am quite happy with how the original photo paper has all but disappeared into the background, just by adding some colour and extending some of the images, like this tree branch.
I also added some shadows around the images to make them stand out a bit against their backgrounds.
