...Flutter By Wednesday #95

On my recent trip to All That Scraps, I found a proverbial gold mine in the Stampavie area! They have an artist by the name of Penny Johnson who creates some of the sweetest images you've ever seen! As soon as I saw her "Butterfly Bear" stamp I knew I wanted to use it for one of the Flutter By Wednesday Challenges, so I chose today's challenge. I stamped and embossed the image before watercoloring it with an Aquapainter and Ink Pad Refills. I used strips of patterned paper from the Pretty Please collection from My Mind's Eye, and kept the layout really simple. So...do you like it as much as I do?

That's it for me today! Thanks for stopping by, and I will see you back here tomorrow with another project. Until then...

Supplies
Stamps: Butterfly Bear (Stampavie), Spring Sugarplum Stamp Kit-sentiment (C.C. Designs)
Papers: Baja Breeze, Sahara Sand, Whisper White, Pumpkin Pie, Watercolor, Pretty Please (My Mind's Eye)
Inks: black, sahara, baja, kiwi, olive, coral, caramel, cocoa, chocolate, pumpkin, durango, ruby red
Accessories: dimensionals, mat pack, paper piercer, sponge, border punch, sewing machine, heart punch, flower punch, nesties, big shot, clear ep, heat gun, aquapainter, glaze pen, rhinestones, brad

Absolutely Adorable! I did not realize ATS had a storefront, so here I am googling Dunlap and realize it is kind of on my way to K-Town where I used to live. Then again I could go "route B" to K-Town and swing by and see you instead!!
Have a great day!
