{Spotlight Project} Deepti Lets the Butterflies Take Flight


Hello, friends! Deepti here and welcome to another spotlight feature. I wanted to use the butterfly from the Gone Postal stamp club set and butterfly always call for something pretty :) So, here's the finished project:


STEP 1
I created a mask using the post it note.



STEP 2
Next I stamped the postal stamp outline stamp on watercolor cardstock along with the butterfly.




STEP 3
I masked the focal postal stamp and stamped the rest of the butterflies with a couple off the edge to indicate flight :) I also did some text stamping to add more interest into the background.




STEP 4
I did some watercoloring of the butterflies and the background was done using wet on dry watercoloring technique :)



Here is a closeup...



That finishes my spotlight feature :) I hope you enjoyed it and will give this a try.  Happy paper crafting!
