Art Journal B is for Butterfly

This week, Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge challenges you to create a project inspired by "B".
Birthdays, blue, Basic Grey, and balloons are just a few things. Please use this letter as inspiration and share with us what B stands for in your crafting!

I was inspired to create an art journal page with beautiful butterflies.

Tim Holtz Rubber Stamp 2015 Watercolor Butterfly is so beautiful that I have to use it on my art journal right after I received it.

I first applied Distress Spray Stain mixed with water to make the background. Some patterns were created with the Tim Holtz Layering Stencil and Distress spray paints, and some were stamped with Tim Holtz rubber stamp and ColorBox Pigment Inks.

I stamped the butterflies with ColorBox Pigment Inks and embossed them with Clearsnap Clear Embossing Powder. 

The flower was stamped using Garden Flower Rubber Stamp 2015 and the sentiment was made with Tim Holtz Rubber Stamp 2015 Live with Your Dream.

The flower was colored using Distress Ink and brush pen.

I hope you like my art journal page and inspired to create your next project with these awesome products.

  14. You are clever to think of hiding the eye behind the butterfly. I have a few face stamps but have run out of ideas on how to use them. You have really inspired me with this. Thank you!
