Off She Flew for Leonie

Hello lovely peeps, hope you are well.

Welcome to my two new followers, I'm thrilled to have you :)

Today's card is using stamps from 3 of Leonie's new stamp sets.


First I made my own ink spritzer by colouring a piece of kitchen towel with a Spectrum Aqua pen and placing it into a spritzer bottle with water (a brilliant tip I got from the colourist Sarah Hurley). I think for this card I used 'Evergreen'.

I put a Clarity seedheads stencil on top of a piece of Sheena's white stamping card, spritzed through it then removed the stencil & dried the card with a heat gun.

Next I stamped parts of the 'Flights of Fancy Background' and some butterflies from 'Flight to Freedom' onto tissue paper with black archival ink.

I glued the tissue paper onto my background with Mod Podge and doodled some lines around the edges

Next I stamped up one of the fab sentiments from the 'Off she flew' set onto white card. I wanted to have the lines separated but there is not a lot of space in between the lines on the stamp, so I inked up the sentiment one line at a time by covering the other lines with post-it notes. After stamping one line I cleaned & dried the stamp before inking up the next one.

Once that was done I coloured in a Gorjuss stamp called 'My Own Universe' with Graph-It markers

I stamped butterfly wings onto vellum and attached them to the back of the cut-out image.

I added some Crystal Glamour Dust to her wings for a little touch of bling

The finished piece was then mounted onto a 7x7 white card blank
