I was inspired by the latest PTI Make-it-Monday video (mim65) where Dawn showed us how to create a pattern-paper background.
I started with just the Egg Hunt paper pack, but couldn’t get the look I was going for. I decided to pick the flower pattern and find other papers to go along with it.
When it came time for stamping, I tried Summer Sunrise and Orange Zest for the butterflies but neither were right. I pulled out the old Orange Zest and that looked better (but my pad is dry and I wasn’t getting a great impression) – so I tried off-stamping the new Orange and liked what I got.
I had a similar problem with the new Avocado ink. It was too dark for what I wanted here, but off-stamping was almost non-existent (weird…I think I need to try that again). Instead, I pulled out the old ink – and it was perfect. So the flourish is old Avocado and the sentiment is new Avocado. I think the (new) darker ink works better over that pattern.
My final touch was adding orange rhinestones to the butterflies.
Thanks for taking a peek!
