Rococo Rose with Butterfly Brilliance
Hi. Welcome to Valley Inspirations with Andrea and the 42nd 2020/2021 Colour Creations Showcase by members of the Art with Heart Team.
This week we are showcasing a gorgeous colour, Rococo Rose. It is one of the soon to retire In Colours for 2019-2021. It's last day as a Stampin' Up In Colour will be 3 May 2021. I use this colour often so will miss it, however, my sneak peak of the new In Colours for 2021-2023 indicates the 5 colours are also gorgeous.
Please excuse the brevity of tonight's post. I have had numerous commitments this past week and with not feeling well, I have run out of "me" to create for this blog tonight. I had intended to message Cathy saying I would sadly have to pull out. I was soo disappointed but was trying to be practical. However, while I was out today, I realised I hadn't sent the message. Panic.
The background water-colour wash used Rococo Rose Classic Stampin' ink on Fluid 100 Water-colour paper. There was some flicking of ink using the Rococo Rose Stampin' Write Marker as well as some Frost White Shimmer Paint. The little holes were die cut using one of the extra textural dies from the Butterfly die set.
A butterfly was stamped in Gray Granite Classic Stampin' ink using the Butterfly Brilliance stamp. The stamp is so gorgeous - really love the detail in the 6 Butterflies. The butterfly was coloured with Stampin' Blends, ie Rococo Rose, Petal Pink and Highland Heather with Gray Granite Combos (including both light and dark shades of each colour). While the detail of the colouring is not really noticeable when looking at the full card; if you take a peak from the side as seen above, the colouring does add to the overall design. The butterfly was die cut using the coordinating Butterfly dies. A detailed die from the same set cut a filagree version of the butterfly from Basic White card-stock. The two butterflies were adhered together just at the body, allowing shaping of the wings to add a sense of movement. A tiny butterfly was also die cut from Basic White card-stock.
I will create another Rococo Rose project tomorrow and include it in this blog over the weekend - stay tuned.
