Art Gallery Slim Line Card - Try Stampin' on Tuesday #491

 I love making Slim Line card, and I adore the new Art Gallery bundle and its coordinating DSP. So I couldn't resist using the DSP on a Slim Line card for the sketch challenge with Try Stampin on Tuesday #491 As well I added the butterfly from "A Touch of Ink", giving it the water colour treatment. I used a different technique with the butterfly and the humming bird to give them a water colour look (see end of post)

Stamps:  Art Gallery, A Touch of Ink

Inks:  Night of Navy
Butterfly:  Night of Navy, Poppy Parade, Balmy Blue

  • Thick Whisper White 7 by 9" scored at 3 1/2"
  • Night of Navy Card Stock 8 3/4 by 3 1/4"
  • Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper 8 1/2 by 3"
  • Night of Navy 3 by 3" adhered to an Adhesive Sheet to die cut sentiment
  • Whisper White 4 by 4" for Butterfly and Hummingbird (on inside)
  • Night of Navy card stock 1/4 by 3" - strip near bottom

  • Floral Gallery Dies
  • Gilded Leafing
  • Gilded Gems
  • Dimensionals


Both the butterfly and humming bird were stamped using the stamparatus.  The detailed image was first stamped with Black Memento ink on Whisper White (although watercolor paper could be used). Various colours of ink were applied directly to the solid counter part image using finger daubers, spritzed with water,  and then stamped directly over the detailed image. This gives a water colour look.
The colours did go outside the stamped lines, but when the butterfly and hummingbird were fussy cut this was not an issue.

Gild Leafing was applied to some of the butterfly.  Some glue was applied with the fine tipped glue pen, allowed to get tacky, and then the gild leafing was applied
