For the “Love of Butterflies” By Guest Designer Melissa Cash

Hi there!  I am so thrilled to have been asked to Guest Designer for Tombow today.  The project I am sharing with you is a set of simple, easy to mail note cards that I have made for my Mom.  Mom loves butterflies, so I picked several butterfly images from my stamp stash to work with.
Each of the cards started with a standard A2 (4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″) white card and stamped the top half with the butterfly images.  For the purple “thinking of you” and the Aqua “happy birthday” cards I colored the Penny Black butterfly stamp directly with my Tombow Dual Brush Pens and then spritzed the stamp with water before stamping the image.  I love the soft watercolor effect this creates.   I added a 3″ x 4 1/4″ piece of print cardstock and a piece of ribbon to each one using Tombow  Stamp Runner. To finish off each card, I added a piece of knotted ribbon that I attached with Mono Aqua Adhesive.
I can’t thank Sharron at Tombow enough for inviting me to share my love of stamping (and Tombow) with you.<<<

    Good stuff, especially the use of the markers and water give the cards an added artistic quality. Thanks for sharing and hope to see more of your work.

    Simple yet absolutely lovely. Each card I saw I said “I can do that” Love the water color butterfly. Thanks for sharing what a treat.

    I love the butterflies. Especially the one that looks like water color. I am going to have to try that with my tombow markers.

    So soft and pretty! I love the look of water colouring with my Tombow markers. There are so many colours and they are so easy to use.
