The weather has turned lovely here (although I heard we have a freeze advisory -eeck! My daffodils may suffer) and so I thought it would be fun to focus on butterflies for this Amusing Challenge! Throughout the month I have different sorts of challenges…”use it”, themes, sketch, etc. I will have a Weekly Winner and at the end of the month, those 4-5 winners will go into a prize drawing for one lucky Grand Prize winner. Aprils’s Prize Winner will receive Owl’s Well – it’s a stamp set that is A Muse Studio’s signature style! P.S. This stamp set and several others below will be retiring in May…look out for Monday’s newsletter with the entire retirement list and Progressive Sale announcement.
My design team is busy this weekend but I hope you won’t be too disappointed with these two lovely inspiration pieces…
Cyndi gold embossed her butterflies from the A Muse Studio Papillon set before coloring them with copic markers and cutting them out. The background is a one of the sheets of 6×6 Everything’s Rosy patterned paper. This definitely feels springy!
amuse studio supplies: Papillon stamp set, Aren’t You Sweet stamp set, Shell cardstock, Everything’s Rosy 6×6 paper, cherry pearls, copics
I was looking at a scrap of cardboard when I thought I’d like to make a banner for some butterflies to perch on…and then my mind went to the Fiesta matching die set and I thought they’d be perfect. I’ve never used them without the stamp set but I’m so glad I stumbled across this new use for them.
