This past week end we made a lot of things with the Butterfly Basics stamp set, this was not one of them :) When I make things for stamp camp I make a lot of different projects and choose projects that I think turned out best, or used a new technique I hadn't used before. This card did not make the stamp camp cut but it is still pretty so I thought I would share it with you. The Butterfly Basics set is lovely and the flower is a nice one for coloring with. I used Shimmery White as my base and it looks really pretty in person.

I take an art class on Tuesdays and this week we were working with ink drawings and adding a bit of watercolor wash to them. As I was working I so often think, "I wish I had a stamp for this" because while I love art class, I am not the best artist :) Anyway, when I got home I thought I would look though my stamps and see if I had an that I thought would work nicely with this technique. I didn't have any that I wanted to use but luckily I had these digital stamps and decided to use them. I cut some Kraft paper into 8 1/2 by 11 so that it would fit in my printer and then I printed them out, slightly enlarged from their original size, a bonus with digital stamps :)
At the bottom of this post I will add a table of other stamps that would be great for this technique.
For this card I decided to use both Baked Brown Sugar and Old Olive ink.
Paper button and some linen thread.
I love the wood paper in the Adventure Bound paper stack, but the wood color was a bit too weathered for my Kraft cardstock, so I added some sponged Baked Brown Sugar to make it a better match.
I made a couple more but I haven't turned them into cards yet. I think this technique is pretty simple and yet it has a really nice look to it. Great for more masculine cards.
Here is my art class drawing. I didn't finish the pen during class so I brought it home.
I added my wash with ink and my aqua painter, don't tell my art teacher, but I really love my aqua painter so much more than a regular paint brush. :)
Supply list to try this with traditional stamps and ink...
Here are some other stamps that I think would be great with this technique
