If you came from Barbaras’s Blog  or you are starting here, then you are in the right place! I created a card using the stamp set Papillon Potpourri. This set is available in wood and clear version and composed of 7 rubber stamps. It coordinates with the Bitty Butterfly Punch that I also used in today’s project. Take a look at my card:

Creating this card was very simple – can you believe I didn’t use watercolor inks or distress inks? I just used dye ink!

  1. Cut the base of the card using whisper white card stock. The size of this is 4-1/4″x11″ with score in 5-1/2″.
  2. Cut a second layer using watercolor paper, the size of this is 4″x5-1/4″.
  3. Chose 3 different colors of classic ink. In my sample I used Pool Party, Daffodil Delight and Calypso Coral Classic Inks, all from Stampin Up.
  4. Stamp three butterflies using your ink selection and punch them. I used an image included on the stamp set Papillon Potpourri from Stampin Up.
  5. Take the watercolor layer and start to applying the ink using an aqua painter or a paint brush. Begin with the lightest color.
  6. Let the watercolor paper dry naturally or you can speed up the process using the heat tool.
  7. Paste the inked layer over the card base.
  8. Decorate your card with the stamped butterflies and a sentiment. For my sentiment, I combined two words included on the stamp set Thoughtful Banners from Stampin Up.

At the end, you don’t notice the difference between the inks because you used watercolor paper and a watercolor technique to create the effect. You never will have the same card using this process and all your cards will turn out unique.

I hope my project inspired you to experiment with you inks and share with us your creations. Quick and beautiful! Don’t you think?
