I was part of a rainbow swap in which 6 of us were each assigned a color. My color was green and boy was it a challenge. I don’t usually create using green as my main color. I tend to lean towards pinks or blues so this was quiet the challenge for me.

I had just recently purchased a set of butterfly stamps with matching dies from Fun Stampers Journey. I fell in love with the detail of the butterflies and knew I wanted to use them ASAP!!!  So I decided I would create green butterflies and use them for my ATC set.

I grabbed some Whip Cream card stock and started to stamp my images in Black Licorice and Limeade Splash.  I then secured the die cuts to the paper using washi tape for quick and easy removal.

Here are all of my beautiful butterflies cut out so crisp and perfectly.  I don’t mind fussy cutting but when a die set is available I make use of it!

So I used a background paper from a paper pack I had and decided to stamp and cut out butterflies for my swap.

After applying Journey Glaze onto my butterflies I applied them to my ATC backgrounds with pop dots and here is the final result.  Hope you like them as much as I did.
