I was lucky enough to get to play with the new Our Daily Bread Designs - January Release. There is this fantastic grunge Butterfly image with coordinating die and background stamp.
I started with an ink based background using Rusty Hinge re-inker and Tattered Angels Glimmer mist. I spritzed the glimmer mist onto the craft mat and dripped in the re-inker. I then used my plastic ruler to smear the two together on the craft mat. I then pulled out white cardstock and dragged it across the inky mat to pick up the colors.
At the end of the smears there are always drips and drops of colors and I pick those up with a new piece of cardstock.
The main image was stamped over one of the pieces I created in my inky process.
The butterfly image is stamped on the inked background using StazOn Azure. I then re-stamped the butterfly only in Rusty Hinge. I stamped the overlay details of the wings of the butterfly on acetate using the StaZon Azure ink. The die cut will cut the shape of the butterfly so I was able to die cut all my butterfly pieces.
The backgrounds were created by stamping the small butterflies using Azure and smearing over it with white acrylic paint. The second background piece is from the ink smearing. The lovely sentiment comes in another new set being released this week at ODBD.
