Honeycomb Happiness - Sale-a-bration 2016 - Stampin' Up!

This cute little chick is from Honeycomb Happiness, a stamp set you can earn FREE with a $60 purchase during Sale-a-bration, going on until March 31, 2016.  No colouring here...I stamped it on Crushed Curry Hello Honey card stock, cut it out and adhered it to the whisper white which was stamped in black.

The background is one of the Timeless Textures images stamped in Lost Lagoon.  Wildflower Fields Designer Series Paper is another Sale-a-bration choice and I used the striped sheet from this set of paper.

Stampin' Mist Technique - Summer Silhouettes - Bold Butterfly - Stampin' Up!

Create your own unique background with your stamp cleaner!  It's as simple as can be and the results are always a little different.

I used Shimmery White card stock and sponged with Bermuda Bay and Wild Wasabi.  I sprayed directly onto the stamp and then stamped several times, re-misting each time.  It takes a few minutes for the magic to work but the results are fun and pretty.

Some glimmer was added to the butterfly with the new Wink of Stella glitter brush.  It is so pretty IRL!
