I was so busy yesterday, stamping up a storm, that I didn't even realize until today that I had nothing to show for it! (At least not yet...) So today, I decreed, was a stamping for me day. It's not like I didn't enjoy myself yesterday, but sometimes, you just need do something for the pure enjoyment. No commitments, no challenges, just back to the basics- what sucked you into stamping in the first place. You know?

I finally got my hands on Wonderful Wings. It's such a gorgeous set and I really like watercolouring the butterflies with twinkling H2Os. I started with one butterfly, then sketched out a layout, which then brought to my attention that I needed to do a second butterfly. I used textured cardstock for the base and for the white panel. I think sometimes a little bit of texture is all you need to bring that visual WOW forward.
Stamps: Wonderful Wings (Su!), Birthday Basics (PTI)
Ink: Versafine Black
Paper: Textured Brown, White, More Mustard, Confetti White for watercolouring
Accessories, etc.: twinkling H2Os, aquabrush, pop dots
