June, the Wedding Month



Hello Monday and welcome friends to our first challenge for June - WEDDINGS AND ANNIVERSARIES. Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge has you covered if you need ideas for June weddings. June has always been a big month for weddings, and there sure are some special ones this month. 

Please join me in welcoming Jess at Two Mad Dahlias as our guest designer for this month, welcome Jess! We are thrilled to have you joining us this month!

The beginning of each month, we like to highlight a company or artist, and this week we are focusing on all of the wonderful array of products from Prima.

Together


I started by glueing a sheet of the Finnabair tissue paper onto a square of watercolor paper. I sealed it with clear crackle, then used the stencil and plaster to create some dimension. I also scraped on a bit more with a palette knife and added some texture paste. (Note, some of my products are older, so I've listed a similar product in the supplies)



A bit of Opal Magic and Mica powder...


...then more color with the Sparks paints.


Meanwhile as the base dried, I stamped images on watercolor paper and colored them with the Prima watercolors. 


I fussy cut the images, and when I glued the butterflies down, I only glued the body so the wings would lift. 


Lots of texture...



Beautiful butterflies winging wedding wishes...


I decided to use the stencil on the pink card and add just a bit of design with pink on pink.


I decided to frame in green and add green to the inside also with the wishes of "have a beautiful day". I also added some hand dyed ribbon. 


Finally, the weather cooperated for some photos outdoors!


Whether it's a wedding or anniversary, this card fits the bill.


I hope you are inspired to join us this week for Weddings and Anniversaries, and I look forward to seeing your creative make! Our generous friends at Simon Says Stamp are offering a $50 voucher to one lucky participant.
