Messages On Their Wings

Hello Everyone
Although Crafty Individuals have a fabulous selection of new stamps (and have you seen the new Must Have products they are stocking?) I still have projects to share from their previous releases. CI-347 the stamp I declared to be my favourite at the time and considering the volume of projects I’ve made with this particular stamp I would say it will remain a firm favourite.
For this post I’d like to share cards I made some time ago, in fact they were made for friends who had May birthdays.  The cards are really V.O.A.T. . I wanted a collage appearance to the card so I punch tiny tags with paper prepared with Gesso and paint and then stamped with other  CI stamps.
C.I. Supplies
C.I. – 347
C.I. – 307
I used tall, cream cards as the base. Watercolour paper had been stained with homemade spray ink, touches of Gesso, etc before stamping the butterflies.
Little tags appear on all three cards.The same prepared watercolour but this time stamped with Brilliance ink pad.A dyed  fabric flower embellishes the final card.You might be interested to know that there is a new Special Offer available at Crafty Individuals on-line store.
Have a lovely evening and many thanks for visiting. Also, thank you for the wonderful feedback on the previous post. Maybe I need to try and make some more CAS cards.
