Flying Free for Leonie

Hello lovely peeps


I've got another Leonie make to show you today, using some of the stamps that were launched on 18th May

Flight to Freedom set

I stamped several of the butterflies onto Sheena's stamping card, masking with sticky notes as I went.
They were then coloured in with Spectrum Aqua pens
Peacock Blue and Evergreen
Sunset,  Sunflower and Topaz
Boulder for the bodies


After colouring I painted Pebeo drawing gum over the top to protect the colours.
I made my own spritzer by soaking a piece of kitchen towel in Peacock Blue aquamarker and placing it into a spritzer bottle with water.
 

I spritzed all over my card and made some little inky puddles on my craft mat with a green aquamarker and clear wink of stella which I flicked all over the card with a wet paintbrush before drying with a heat gun



I cut the card down but left some wing tips poking out over the edges


I matted it on top of some white card which was embossed with a Crafters Companion Hessian folder before I tore the edges.


I stamped and coloured a few extra butterflies onto lightweight watercolour card and cut them out for decoupaging on top, and then wrapped cheesecloth around the card so it looks like they're escaping from a butterfly net. 

The whole thing is mounted onto a 7x7 card blank and then to finish off I stamped 'Free' with black memento ink and added some clear dew drops
