Bees, Cosmos and a Butterfly



This is Susan on the blog today. I needed to make a very special birthday card for a dear young woman. She is expecting her fourth child so I needed to knock this out of the park. The pink butterfly represents their daughter and the 3 bees are their sons. The third bee, who is not quite here yet, is just tucked under the large "mama" flower. As you can see on the detail shot, I used a lot of 3M Foam tape.

I got out my standard sized MISTI and stamped out WPlus9 Designs Flora and Fauna 3 onto Arches 140 lb cold pressed water color paper. The MISTI is great for water color paper as I often have to stamp 3 times to get the image fully stamped. The MISTI keeps everything lined up until I am done with the stamping. I wanted a no-line look so I used InkOn3 Fade Out ink. I think used my water color palette to color everything in. Most of my paints are by Daniel Smith. The flower color is mostly Quinacridone Coral.

After I finished all the painting, I used the accompanying dies to die cut all the images out. I stamped the sentiments using my MISTI. I think I used WPlus9 Designs Old Silver for both. I did use the shadow die cut three times for the with love sentiment. I also die cut the WPlus9 Designs Lattice Frame die for the back ground. I mounted everything with 3M Foam tape and added droplets using Gina K Connect Glue.

  1. When is the misti going to be available? They are sold out everywhere for at least a couple of months now.
