Hi everyone! Time for a new challenge over at Happy Little Stampers. The 1st of the month sees our Watercolour Challenge kick off. It is always Anything Goes but we offer an optional theme for you to play along with.
Today I am sharing with you something I have never made before - a mini book. I cut all my pieces out of watercolour paper using the Sizzix Passport Die.
The die allows you to cut your covers, inside pages, and spine to bind it all together.
I used the smooshing technique using Crimson, Orange, and Lemon Brusho colours.
I decided I wanted to create a book just for butterflies.
I used a number of HLS stamps and a couple of stencils with texture paste. I also hand wrote some butterfly quotes.
Once I had all my pages ready and dry, it was time to bind it all together. I used Baker's Twine and added a little butterfly charm.
Here is what the die looks like (it is an XL Bigz Die)
I added a couple of little blooms using a stencil and ink but my main focus was the butterflies.
I hope you will join us over at the challenge blog! Here is a recap of the stamps I used from HLS
Our winner for this challenge will receive a $20 coupon to spend at the shop! Check out all the details HERE.
Thanks for popping in today and I can't wait to see your watercolour entries.
