Butterflies and Ladybugs by Marie Johansson

Hi everyone! The fact is that the snow is pouring down here really bad and I am here to share a Spring inspired project today! I guess you can imagine what I wish for right now… This is my very first set of Artist Trading Coins and I have used the wonderful Garden Party Collection for it. I love the colours in this collection and I have been playing with the 6×6 papers and the clear stamp set that co-ordinates with the Collection.

I used the “Born” paper for these two cards. After cutting the circles I added random stamping in two colours. Then stamped on the Butterfly and painted it with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists. I love to add the small half peals over sticker to create a 3 dimensional effect. For my other two cards I decided to fussy cut some of the flowers from the “Dreamy” paper. I used the same technique with random stamping on the background (this time the “Fairy Lights” paper) and I also stamped on a magpie that was coloured. To create depth I used 3D squares to adhere the fussy cut flowers, and I love the result – don´t you?
