Harebells And Notelets


This is my second post this month for the Chocolate Baroque's shows that were in July, using some really gorgeous stamps.
My first make is a notelet set, I do enjoy making the notelet sets,  I used several stamp sets for this project, I used Harebell Butterfly, Honeysuckle Butterfly, Briar Rose Butterfly and Thistle Butterfly.  I started by creating the box to put the notelets in and as you can see used the Harebell hero (main image) stamp for the front, the notelets are made using a worker (smaller) stamp from each set.  I masked the edges of the cards off, then using three colours of Distress oxides did an ombre background, I stamped the images in the centre, then matted and layered each card.  For the envelopes I took a circle mask and added some ink to each corner of the envelopes. I then stamped one of the worker stamps over the top.

I absolutely love this image from Harebell Butterfly set that I used for my second creation, I started this one by stamping my image then using Distress Oxide and a stencil brush I added some ink around the image, I coloured the image using Aqua pencils then adding water to blend.  I very lightly drew with a pencil a rectangle with a ruler to frame it.  I went around the pencil line free hand so's not to have an exact straight line with a fine liner.  Using the Oxides I did a matching backing paper to matt and layer on.

Thank you for looking, I will be coming back at the end of the month with a couple more samples.

Happy crafting

Beautiful work, Tracy. Loving the notecard set with those pretty shades of ink on the backgrounds and completed with the matching envelopes too, but my favorite is the last card with the gorgeous butterflies and bluebells. I agree it's a beautiful image and you used it to perfection!
