Bugaboo Stamps

It is time for another challenge over at Crafting with an Attitude and this is my Design Team project for the challenge. The sponsor this month is Bugaboo Stamps and since I love to color flowers, I chose to work with Flower Butterfly Corner.


I arranged the digi and my sentiment into a 4.25 x 5.5 inch notecard size space using MS Word on my computer. The font for the sentiment is Honey Script. I also love to use it to cut sentiments with my Silhouette machine. I printed it out on Stathmore Paint Pad paper and colored the image with my Prismacolor colored pencils.


I do love coloring flowers and so this beautiful digi was a pleasure to color. I colored the butterflies blue so that the were noticeable and did not blend into the flowers.


I did the background with soft pastels, creating a gradient of 4 colors from a light yellow, to a dark yellow to a light orange and then to a dark orange. I sprayed the complete panel with workable fixative before adhering it to a black cardbase.

General supplies:
Strathmore Paint Pad paper
Paper studio black cardbase
Bugaboo Stamps Flower Butterfly Corner digital stamp
Prismacolor pencils
