Butterfly Thanks

   Hello! I have been enjoying playing with the latest additions to my stamp collection, Wet Paint from Papertrey Ink. This set is wonderful! I am going to get a lot of use out of this set for sure. I used the coordinating stamp set also from Papertrey Ink Watercolor Wonder. I stamped the brush strokes in 3 colors of Stampin' Up! ink, Daffodil Delight, So Saffron, Barely Banana, and Smokey Slate. I added a die-cut butterfly from the PTI Beautiful Butterflies collection.
      To create my gift box I embossed my gray card stock using the same butterfly die. To keep the die from cutting through the paper you'll need to put a piece of rubber under your card stock.
One of my favorite things about this gift set are the wood grain polka dots! I loved the newly released polka dot set, but decided against ordering it because I already have Polka Dot Basics 1 and 2. So, using Polka Dot Basics 1, and the Wood Grain stamp from Farm and Barn I used the "kissing" technique to create my wood grain dots! I am thrilled with the end result! The possibilities are endless!
I am happy you stopped by, and I hope you have a wonderful day!

such a pretty color combo for this set! Cool. I was wondering if the older polka dots could be made like the new set. thanks for showing it in action!
