Trying Again

PaperTrey Ink has new stamps. I thought I would try once again for their design team. One of their new sets is by Madras Design called It's A Celebration. Well the bow to me looked like a butterfly so I took it and the bottom of the hat to make a buterfly (I highlighted the stamps I used in pink on the right). Then I took a streamer to make the path of the butterfly. I made it all on vellum so it gave it a cool look but it also was easier to piece together.



Stamps: PTI - Madras Designs It's A Celebration; Ink: Noir Black, Berry Sorbet, Aqua Mist, Spring Moss; Paper: White, Vanilla, Bashful Blue, Vellum; Other Supplies: Berry Sorbet Ribbon, CB Birds & Swirls, Stickles, Fun Flock Caramel Latte Tan

This is really great. The butterfly is so light and fluttery. Good luck, I think it is a winner for sure!!

You are so SMART to turn that bow into a butterfly. It looks great in vellum. :0) Mel

Oh how cute! Love the idea of using the images for something other than the obvious (not that I am good at that, but I love it when others do it) How awsome it would be to get on a designer team! I really hope it works out for you. Maybe someday I will be "brave" like you and try out for one! Good Luck!!!
