Sketch Saturday Challenge – Week 149

                             Magnolia (Boy)

I decided to break out the rubber stamps and give them some love!  This is a Magnolia rubber stamp.  I’ve had them for ages, and finally decided to color them.  I can’t remember what the boys are called, feel free to leave me a comment if you know the name.

I colored the little guy with my copics, and then cut him out, so that he would appear to be sitting on the edge of the layers.  I used the Sakura glitter pen on his wings.  The designer papers are from the Graphic 45 paper pad, and Cappella paper pad by Basic Grey.  I also used Tim Holtz Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink, around the edges of the turquoise card stock.  Flowers, ribbon and buttons are from my scrap pile.

For the butterfly I stamped acetate and heated set it, then hand cut a butterfly from a template.  Then I added a smaller version of the butterfly in turquoise card stock and then added the gems for the body.  I believe the tutorial for the butterfly was from a magazine, that I got ages ago!  Here is a close up of the butterfly.

Now you can see the stamped image on the acetate.  They were very simple to make, and I love how they look.  It would also make a great card just using the butterfly as the focal point.
