Butterfly Dreams

Today's the day! John Lockwood launches his own stamp designs on Create & Craft today at 10am and 4pm. 

Here is a card made using his Butterfly Dreams Elements Clear Stamp set.

It has been such fun using these new Elements stamps as you are free to compose your own layouts. For the background on this card I chose the bubbles stamp plus one of the small butterflies. I stamped these using two shades of blue Distress Ink and matted with co-ordinating coloured card.

The decorative die cut panel was made using Sue Wilson's Californian background die. The die cut was placed over some double sided adhesive and then Cosmic Shimmer Mica Powder was brushed over, attaching itself to the sticky areas between the die cut card. The cute little tags are also from one of Sue's new die designs, Pierced Tags (one of my favourites).

The butterfly panel was stamped using John's Butterfly Dreams Striplet stamp. This is a panel, designed to co-ordinate with the Elements stamps and also to fit the outside die from some of Sue Wilson's Striplet Die designs. The stamped image was coloured using a wet paint brush and Cosmic Shimmer Mica Powders (from the Garden Flora set).

Hope you are able to catch John's shows today for lots more inspiration.

Happy crafting!
