Cause for Celebration

Indeed! Best friends rock! Can you believe this is the first time I used this hostess set from Stampin'Up!? I love it too. The butterflies and the flowers are just too cute.

The main image is made by stamping the butterflies on Shimmery White card stock, masking them, then airbrushing over the top with Copic marker R85, then R05. I started with a bigger piece, then ran the center through my Cuttlebug with a Nestability die. The strip on the side is a left over piece stamped with the little flower from the set. The sentiment is from the set Full of Life available for a little while longer out of the Occasions Mini. I stamped it onto Shimmery, then punched it out with the Key Tag punch, then started up my compressor and used the brush tip of the same markers in the airbrush gun to "splatter" a little color all over.

Here is the recipe:

Stamps: Cause for Celebration, Full of Life.
Paper: Shimmery White, Basic Black, Regal Rose.
Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black, Regal Rose.
Other: Uniball White Gel Pen, Key Tag Punch, Crafter's Tool Kit, Dimensionals, Black Gingham, Nestabilities, Cuttlebug, Scor-pal, Janome Sew Mini, Vintage Brads.

Thanks for stopping by!
