Butterfly...

This week's Wednesday Stamper is themed 'coloured' - Do you have a favorite way of colouring your rubber stamp images or backgrounds? Or do you like to colour a photograph? We’re anxious to seeing your favorite colouring !

I don't have a wide range or stamps or things to colour them with, I think that my watercolour pencils which might have been the only suitable thing vanished a long time ago in to the collective pot of crayons...


I do have though, some dies and patterned paper. I used a sizzix butterfly die cut from foam to make a stamp and stamped it in black on to coloured paper :). - I only also have 3 colours of ink pads, brown, black and pink so using them was not an option...

I also used Basic Grey Phoebe paper, angel kisses flowers, cuttlebug circle frame, ribbon from Little Silver Hat, a bit of mum's net curtain (!) button, staple and eyelets from stash, hand stitching and doodling.

The overlay is from Typo Generator I used the word 'Butterfly' and used the generator to randomise it, printed the result on to paper (I would like to say vellum but I think it was cheapo tracing paper!). A pretty cool overlay methinks :)
