Stamp in Different Ways Butterfly Art Journal

Hey, my dear crafty friends, it's time for a new theme at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. Do you have stamps that are versatile? That can be used many ways? This week we challenge you to use a stamp multiple ways on the same project or use the same stamp in different colors or ways on multiple projects!

I had fun to play my butterfly stamp in different ways on my art journal page.

I was inspired to create this art journal with different ways using Tim Holtz Rubber Stamp Watercolor Butterfly. For the background I watercolored some images with Distress Mini Ink Pad, and embossed some images with ColorBox Petal Point Pigment Inks and Clearsnap Clear Embossing Powder. The dimensional butterfly embellishments were stamped and embossed on the canvas fabric.

This is the embossed butterfly using Colorbox pigment ink and clear embossing powder.

To create the watercolored butterfly, I inked the stamp with Distress Mini Ink Pad, spritzed it with water then stamped the image on the journal page. 

The butterflies on canvas fabric were stamped with Colorbox Crafter's ink, and colored with Distress Inks and a brush pen.

I hope you enjoy my project and use your favorite stamp in different way to create your next project.
