Happy Monday, Stampers!

It’s Melody, and I hope today finds you all well and safe.  My butterfly cards are dedicated to all those who have found themselves in the path of a hurricane or near out of control wildfires.  Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.

The Dare 2B Artzy Challenge this month is to make shaped cards.  While these cards are rectangular, the fronts have been fussy cut to highlight the butterflies and provide a peek at the patterned paper adhered to the card base.
I began by creating masks for the butterflies from the Butterfly Inspiration set.  I then stamped the butterflies along the edge of my card base with Totally Black Ink.  Using the masks, I was able to overlap the butterflies as desired.  I then colored the butterflies with Copic markers.
I used the following Copic combinations: (R43, R14, R24), (BG13, BG05, BG09), (C1, C3, C4), (Y11, Y17, YR16), and (YG13, G43, G02).

Highlights were added with Wink of Stella and Sakura Glaze pens.  Nuvo Crystal Drops Gloss White were also utilized on the card above.

I hope you will join in the fun of the Ship Shape Challenge!  Be sure to link up your creations here for a chance to win a Dare 2B Artzy stamp set and ink pad of your choice!

Happy stamping!

Hi everyone – it’s Vicki from All I Do Is Stamp.

Today, I am using the Bright Birthday and Butterfly Inspirations stamp sets.  I water colored the back panel and stamped the solid circle with some oxide ink.  I colored my butterflies with Copic markers.

I have so much fun creating with D2BA products.  The designs are just a blast to color!

 

             

I hope you enjoyed my card today.

Happy Sunday Dare 2B Artzy Friends!!

Please help us give a warm Welcome to this month’s Guest Designer….

4 x 6 vky

I’m Vickie Yeakley (AKA Vickie Y).  I live in a small resort town in Indiana.  I am married and we have grown children and lots of beautiful grandkids!  I’m retired from the public school sector as a grant administrator for eleven school districts.  When I retired, work was replaced with paper crafting FUN!  My blog is On The Fringe (because I’m always on the fringe of discovery!)

I am excited to be the April D2BA Guest Designer!

I consider myself an eclectic crafter, creating all types of paper crafts.  I enjoy using different coloring media.

For my first card this month I used the Butterfly Inspiration stamp set.

4 9 17 Butterfly Inspiration vky

To create the background I inked two of the butterfly images using inks from the Dare 2B Artzy Festive and Tropical ink cubes and stamped onto watercolor cardstock.  Using a #9 round watercolor brush and lots of water I pulled the color from the stamped images, then dried the panel using a heat tool.  I stamped the larger butterfly onto the watercolored background using Dare 2B Artzy Totally Black ink.  Stamped the butterfly again on a scrap piece of watercolor cardstock then smooshed the Festive and Tropical ink cubes onto my craft mat and picked the color up with an aquabrush to color the butterfly, heat set, and then fussy cut it to overlay on the black stamped butterfly image.

I completed the card panel by stamping the sentiment and using the paintbrush and to do a little ink splatter.

I hope you like this fun and colorful butterfly card; I encourage you to try this easy watercolor technique on your next card!

Vickie Y
