A project of three with instructions!

The other three cards use a different technique, this one requires baby wipes and the reinkers.

Lots of people have talked about this but its new to me and I have to say took me some time to get it good enough to try in a class.
There is so much colour in these I have kept the card quite simple. The stamp set is watercolour wings, mostly using the small butterfly. The butterfly is stamped on white card which is then matted onto one of the stampin'up notecards, with the new precision plate die cutting these intricate butterflies is a doddle!
We made 3 of these then put them into a glassine bag which we decorated with the  banner punch and another butterfly.. It would make a lovely little gift.

Here I have made a series of pictures of the ladies making these cards.


We were well on our way with making the cards when I remembered I needed to take lots of pictures, so we have lots of visual clues instead. This one says 
 'You need 4 wet wipes'
They have to be folded in half and piled up onto of each other.


This one shows you
You need to drop ink from the re inkers at a height of at least 8"
We used 3 colours, 
Next you 
press your stamp onto the ink
Ensure you do not jiggle it around as this merges all the ink colours into a muddy puddle!



Then stamp






 The image contains all the colours of the re-inkers. We had quite a variety of colour combinations. This butterfly is wisteria wonder, garden green and marina mist.










These butterflies are calypso coral, bermuda bay and  daffodil delight.


























These cards are rich razzleberry, old olive and pink pirouette.














 The three cards were then put into a glassine bag and stapled with a banner and a butterfly, final touch tied with bakers twine, such a pretty gift.
I think my ladies did really well, once the technique was mastered then did their own thing with daubing, embellishments and matt layers.

Well thats the last class at my house, next month the second Wednesday of the month group will be meeting in Our Creative Den........ more information coming soon.
