National Scrapbooking Day with Skipping Stones Designs

Happy National Scrapbooking Day, Skipping Stones Design style!!   Today I'm joining the Skipping Stones Design team with a blog hop of past and current designers. 

If you just happened to stubble upon my blog today, your smack dab in the middle of this hop so be sure to start back at the beginning so you don't miss any fabulous eye candy!

If you just arrived from Angela's  blog, then you are right place!!  Hop along and see all the fabulous Scrapbook pages  made with Skipping Stones Design stamps!!!    Lots of gorgeous creations to be seen!


Supplies Used:
Stamps: Skipping Stones Designs (Healing Wings)
Butterfly Diecut: Kreaxions Just Imagine 
Pattern Paper: My Little Shoebox
Coloring Mediums: Derwent Inktense pencils, Tattered Angels, White Sharpie, Gesso
other: tissue paper, buttons, yarn

I used Healing Wings to create a background paper for my layout. I stamped the images in Archival ink and then colored the butterflies in with Derwent Inktense watercolor pencils. Next I painted a coat of white Gesso over it to soften the butterfly images. Last I sprayed some Tattered Angels over the paper. Here is a closeup of the butterfly paper...


I created the tissue paper butterfly by diecutting four butterflies from tissue paper using Kreaxions Butterfly Die. I stitched them together in the center and hid the stitching with butterflies. I snipped off the antenna and added yarn behind the butterfly for antenna. 

Leave a comment on each blog (some are giving away prizes) and when you have finished, go back to the beginning at Skipping Stones Design and leave a comment, telling us what you thought of the hop.  One lucky commenter will be chosen Wednesday, May 11th to win the Skipping Stones Design may release stamp set!!!

Keep hopping along, run off too Brenda's blog!!

Happy Hopping!!
