Uniko Studio Introduction: English Country Garden - Butterflies

Sunday, June 8, 2014

Welcome back to the second day of introduction posts for the Uniko Studio June release! Here's the sneak peek photo of the stamp set that was revealed a couple days ago. Remember, on June 11th, all the new sets will be available for purchase over on the Uniko Studio website!

I think this is my favorite set this month!! Don't get me wrong, they are ALL FABULOUS, but this one is exceptionally beautiful, and has so much potential! Check it out.

The watercolor paper is mounted to a black cardstock base. The large butterfly and the phrase are both heat embossed with white ep. I used Distress Inks, a craft mat, and a water brush to color in the large butterfly. So fun!! Using pretty much the same technique, I gently brushed over the sentiment with multiple ink colors and blended them together with the water brush. LOVE LOVE LOVE this look! The small butterflies were "painted" directly on the stamp with inks and the water brush, then stamped directly on the watercolor paper. A few black enamel dots finish it off!

I'd love to know what you think of this!! I can't wait to play around more with this set....so gorgeous!
