Wouldn’t you know it, I don’t have a single stamp with that word featured, even in a minor way! But I do have a die and so that show I went. I didn’t mean to (or want to) copy Hels’ card exactly but I do love butterflies and I did have a stamp/die set that would work…
My first task was to create a background for my butterflies. I “smooshed” four colors of Distress Stains by loading them onto an acrylic block and then pulling the block across a piece of scrap watercolor paper. I then stamped three butterflies from the Sizzix Framelits set “Limitations” and used the dies from that set to cut out the butterflies and four rows of stars.
Then I applied the Sizzix Movers & Shakers die “Imagine” on ivory card so that the word would appear at the bottom of a top-fold card. I backed the die cut with a scrap of red (and LOTS of Scor-tape!). I used a strip of score tape to arrange the rows of stars below the word and the thee butterflies above. Finally, using the Distress Marker Spritzer, I spritzed the card with three colors of Distress Marker.
