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.<<<
