Continuing on my magnet making kick, I have made another butterfly magnet. This one meets two different challenges too:
Flutterby Wednesday - open so long as you use a fairy, butterfly or angel
PaperPlay - Summer Citrus Splash: greens, yellows and oranges
Unfortunately, I was a tad too late to enter the Flutterby one. No matter, it still inspired a part of my creation!
I love the width of the butterfly on this stamp. I also love how the red pops against the more muted yellow and the orange. Hooray for colour challenges! I am not normally drawn to citrus colours, so I am pleased with how this turned out. On this design, I used a Stampin' Up word stamp on the bottom half and then sponged more ink over it to make it appear faded. Then I used a darker ink to stamp the scroll.
You can see the original prototype for my butterfly magnet in an earlier post. I actually made one in between these two designs which is already listed in my shops.
I already had two prototypes for this design as well, which are now on the fridges of my sisters (my sister and my sister-in-law!) I quite enjoy these magnets! I will probably come up with at least one more design.
