Created Byhand Challenge - Welcome or Yellow



This weeks Created Byhand Challenge is to use the theme Welcome and/or the color yellow.  I went with yellow.  All stamps are from Quietfire Design and most of the products are also available from them.  I cut a piece of watercolor paper and also a piece of chipboard using the Tim Holtz ornamental die.  The flourish is stamped onto the watercolor paper with Versamark ink and embossed with clear powder... next I brushed Ecoline ink #205 lemon yellow over the whole piece using a damp brush and then went around the edges with Ecoline ink #337 yellow ochre... blotted up the extra and let it dry... then the flourish was stamped with Versamagic ink oasis green as shown and finally the watercolor piece was attached to the chipboard piece.  "Inspire" is stamped on a scrap of white cardstock with Archival ink jet black, distress ink scattered straw applied around the edges using a blending tool and foam, piece cut to fit opening in ornate plate and plate attached to base with brads.  Versamagic ink cloud white was rubbed on some scraps of grungepaper and dried... butterflies stamped onto these scraps with Versamagic purple hydrangea and dried... butterflies cut out and only bodies glued to piece as shown.  Sticky back white pearls added to butterfly bodies.
