Artful Stampers Team Challenge Calypso Cabana Delight

This week, the Artful Stampers Team Challenge is a sketch.

You may have arrived from Jane Riches’ blog with one of her lovely projects.

I stamped the Swallowtail image on Whisper White with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then coloured it with Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana and Daffodil Delight Blendabilities. I then added a Soft Sky watercolour wash and stamped the leaves from Bloom with Hope onto the background. A sentiment from Petite Pairs was then added using Memento Tuxedo Black. Using the sketch turned clockwise 90° I cut the art panel and layered it onto a Basic Black base. For added texture, I used Crystal Effects over various parts of the butterfly, and  dimensionals on the bottom right panel. Sorry it is a little difficult to see in the photograph, but the parts that don’t look coloured are, in fact, the shine from the Crystal Effects..
