Impression Obsession: A Mature Monarch Butterfly

Hi, Today the Impression Design team is using stamps from older releases because they are just as beautiful and inspiring as they were when they were released. You can find more inspiration on the IO Blog: here.

Today I used Monarch, a cling stamp released in Spring 2019, Fluff Cover-A-Card background released soooo long ago but it is a favorite and a new sentiment Tend the Little Things.

Using my regular sized MISTI, I removed the foam pad and stamped the butterfly in Versafine Onyx Black as I was going to be using a water based medium. I used Arches 140 lb Cold press watercolor paper for this image. Next I used my Karin Markers to color in the butterfly. I then used the black Karin marker to fill in the areas where the stamping was too light for the contrast I wanted.
Again using my regular sized MISTI, I stamped the Fluff Cover-A-Card cling stamp with a blue ink. I cannot remember the name lol. I mounted the butterfly onto the vellum using 3M FoaUm tape.

I wanted the sentiment to have some dimension as well. I think tending the little things during this pandemic is very important. I treated the vellum with a anti-static too. This is a cling stamp and easily lined up using the MISTI. I stamped it in Versafine Onyx Black and added clear embossing powder. Using my pre-warmed up heat gun I melted the powder which gave the sentiment a raised and shiny look.

Thanks for stopping by;

    Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR. EMU and I emailed him and he replied to me so kindly and helped me get back my lovely relationship that was already gone for two months.
