SNSS July Mini Blog Hop Day 4

It's Day 4 of the Mini Blog Hops celebrating the July releases at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps - today we're showcasing a set which I'm very excited about and all you butterfly lovers out there will be too!



I love sponging these butterflies and find them fairly easy to cut out, I simply add a little bit of shading on the antennae with my black copic and go around the edges with the black copic too - it gives clear definition and makes them stand out a bit more.
Sponging is a great alternative for uncomplicated images if you're not that fond of colouring!  I used various Stampin Up inks including Lucky Limade, Melon Mambo, Orchid Opulence, Taken with Teal, and Cool Caribbean.  The butterflies were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
There's not much else to explain as this is a very clean and simple card, the butterflies arranged in a trail along with some black gems.

This set is one I'll be reaching for again and again - in case you missed it, check out the second card on THIS post for another creation using this great set.


Here are the details:

Stamp set includes 6 images and 3 sentiments.
It measures approximately 6" x 4".
The largest butterfly measures approximately 2 1/2 " x 1 3/4".
It's designed by Korin Sutherland.
It's priced $15.

Check out some of the fabulous samples made by our DT in the thumbnails below.
Be sure to leave a comment on each of the blogs along your journey because
Korin's giving away this set to one lucky winner!
The deadline to comment for a chance to win is midnight EST Friday, July 19th.
