Not so long ago, Redlead released a new stamp collection, Nature Study a beautiful collection featuring ferns, feathers, fabulous set of labels and also beautiful and generously sized rabbit, bee and butterfly (you might be interested to know that at the time of drafting this blog post, the new stamps are on sale, sold as a whole collection or for each individual stamp set).
So a relatively short post to share two cards,( essentially the same card!) featuring the:-
butterfly from Butterfly and Bee
sentiment from HERE
label from HEREOther than the Memento ink to stamp the butterfly and sentiments, I used PaperArtsy Infusions. It doesn’t seem it but on both cards I used the same colours of Infusions. I don’t know if the fact I used different cardstocks aided the different results. This card is watercolour paper, I like the softness of the colours, lots and lots of water used with the Infusions on both cards.I wanted a dreamy effect for the butterflies. On both cards I also used the Infusions to stain lace.I had a pack of polka dot embossed cardbases and to be honest, they were neglected, read that as never opened! I didn’t expect them to stand up to the abuse from the amount of water I worked with, surprisingly, they barely buckled. Comparing the Infusions to Brushos, for me, there is no comparison. That doesn’t mean to say I might never dip into the Brushos ever again, I am sure I will but I am happier with the Infusions, possibly because of the walnut crystals.Many thanks for your visit.
