PaperArtsy #3Up Challenge - PART 2

Hello again, here is the next installment of the PaperArtsy #3Up Challenge I participated in. As I mentioned on my last post, Leandra (PaperArtsy Owner) requested one project for the challenge, but as the products I received to do this challenge were so scrummy, I got carried away!!!
I did four projects in total - here is project number two!

 I stamped the large flower stamp from the Hot Pick 1011 stamp set six times on to white neenah smooth card.

I coloured each flower head with Dusty Concord Distress Ink using a waterbrush and then coloured the center of the flower heads and stalks of two of the flowers with Crushed Olive and Peeled Paint Distress Inks using a waterbrush.

I cut out four of the flower heads and cut two of the complete flower stamp with stalk. I then layered them on top of each other using foam pads in between each layer to create a decoupage flower.

I stamped three of the butterfly stamps (from the Hot Pick 1004 stamp set) on to clear shrink plastic with black Stazon ink.

I cut them out then heated them with a heat gun until they shrunk.

I attached the decoupage flower to cream/beige printed card. Then matted it on to textured cream card and layered it on to purple floral card, then purple glitter card.

I attached the three butterflies with glue gel to allow them to stand from the card.

I really enjoyed doing this project although it is a different crafty angle from my usual style. I loved using this individual stamp and thought I'd try something different than flat stamping.

Leave me a comment - all comments are kindly received. Toodles for now.
