Hello everyone… “April Showers Bring May Flower” I bet you all familiar with that saying, right? We got lots of rain showers in April, and surely they bring May flowers and also will draw more butterflies… One of my favorite flowers in our garden is the giant tulips.
As you can see, my card today is inspired by May flowers and butterflies, also… Joy Clair May Challenge Photo Inspiration. Isn’t that beautiful?
I stamped the jar image from Doodle Flowers Clear Stamp Set with VersaFine Onyx Black Ink Pad on a heavyweight white cardstock. I created a mask for the jar lid by stamping it on a post it note and cut it with scissors.
I also created masks for the tulip from Spring Time Clear Stamp Set. And then I used VersaFine Onyx Black Ink to stamp the first tulip, added the mask on it, stamped one more on the left, and another one on the right. After that, I used Faber-Castell black artist pen to extend the stems.
I colored the tulips and the jar to make it look like pink tinted jar using Leisure Arts – Watercolored Pencils and watercolor brush. To add the extra darker color on the tulip petals, I picked up the pigment directly front the pencil with watercolor brush and painted on them. I did the same way with the stems and jar. I set it aside to dry.
I stamped those butterflies from Butterfly Kisses Clear Stamp Set with VersaFine Onyx Black on a heavyweight white cardstock. First I colored the big butterflies wings by adding colors the just small area of top of the wings with pink watercolored pencil, and then blue at the bottom of the wings. And then using the watercolor brush, I blended both colors.
For the little butterflies, I colored them with blue and purple watercolored pencils with the say method and then blended them with watercolored brush.
I fussy cut the jar of tulips and butterflies using micro-tip scissors.
And then stamped one of the sentiments from the Butterfly Kisses Clear Stamp Set with VersaFine Onyx Black on a white cardstock, and then I trimmed it into a small tag.
I wrapped the jar with natural twine ribbon, tied up a bow, and added the tag sentiment under it with Art Glitter Dries Clear Adhesive Glue.
I created the watercolored wash background on a piece heavyweight white cardstock by adding the Broken China Ink on craft mat, sprayed some water, and dipped the card. I dried it with craft heater. I trimmed it slightly smaller than A2 black card base.
I added the panel on the card with permanent adhesive runner. Next, I added the jar couple of the small butterflies on the card with 3D foam tape, and then I added one big butterfly under the jar with dries-clear adhesive.
