Challenge #4

So this time a something a little different...  I dug out my new cameo today and decided that I wanted to try out the sketch challenge at Mojo Monday.  It was supposed to have a tag as well but I just couldn't fit it in there... but I though I would enter it anyway! :)   I am also joining the Challenge at Flutterby Wednesday which needs a butterfly or a fairy!

Bazzil Bling and Assorted Paper
Bright Pink Copic Marker to highlight butterfly edges
Pink embossing powder
White ink
Brads & Ribbon

Well this one started out with an idea I saw here for creating your own stamps.  Then I thought hey I could cut out some of my Slice foam with my Silhouette!  So I cut out my own stamp, then stamped it in white on a larger image I also cut on my Silhouette.  I was looking at it and thought hmm... some embossing powder would make it all sparkly! I also cut the doily with my Silhouette.  I was really trying to work in the butterfly like a tag on the left hand side but it was just too big... then it just seemed to fit right in on the right side so that's were it ended up.

I didn't have anything for my copics so I just had to colour the edges on the butterfly.  Really now I probably could have use a stamp pad.

I am really thrilled that I created the stamp from an image I cut on my Silhouette.  It took me about 3 test stamps to get it really inked up the way I liked but was very happy with the end result.  Not to mention that with the outline function I could make a bit bigger butterfly to stamp it on!

Here is a pic of the stamp on the block... as the foam was quite thin I had a bit of a mess on the block but I didn't get any on my paper when I was stamping it so I was happy.  I really can't wait to try this out again!  Although next time I will not use high tack adhesive.  I was just so excited I grabbed what was closest.

As always I was crafting with my daughter.  Today it was a sticker day, she tells me the starfish are holding hands and the little fish are in school! :)

Beautiful butterfly, and how cool you made the stamp yourself. Awesome! How fun to stamp with your daughter, too. It's very cute:) Thanks for joining the Flutter By Wednesday challenge this week.
