We made these pansies out of the Stampin' Up! Butterfly punch and my downline training meeting last night. It is fun to see how different everyones turned out even though we all used the same supplies. I will explain how to make the pansy later in this post, but first here is the card we put on pansy masterpiece on.
All supplies Stampin' Up! unless noted
Paper: Elegant Eggplant, Whisper White and Shimmery White
Reinkers: Daffodil Delight, Rich Razzleberry, Perfect Plum and Elegant Eggplant
Accessories: Elegant Eggplant Stampin' Write Marker, Butterfly Punch, Big Shot, Elegant Bouquet Textured Impressions embossing folder, Lilac brad from Circle Ice Rhinestone Brads, Piercing tool, Mat Pack, Mini Glue Dots, Aqua Painter. Non Stampin' Up! supplies: Spritzer Bottle, Paper towels. Chop Stick
So do you want to know how to make these beautiful Pansys? You want to start with two butterflies punched out of Stampin' Up! Shimmery White paper. Put two drops of each reinker on a watercolor palette or styrofoam plate. Spritz with water totally saturating the butterflies. Using the Aqua Painter pick up some Daffodil Delight reinker and touch the center of the butterfly. The ink will spread out. Touch the Aqua Painter to the Perfect Plum and add to the butterfly near the Daffodil. Next Add the Perfect Plum letting it spread all the way out to the edges. I then added the Elegant Eggplant just on the edges. They will dry lighter. If you think you have to much color, you can remove some by picking up color from the butterfly with your Aqua Painter and then wipe it off on your paper towel. You can see that I added more Elegant Eggpalnt on the the Pansy that is on the card above. Let dry totally (or they will tear - you can air dry or heat dry, I let mine air dry, it doesn't take that long). Using the Eggplant or Razzleberry Stampin' Write Marker add lines, making the lines longer on the butterfly that will be on the bottom. Using the Paper Piercer and the Mat Pack, pierce a hole and add a Lilac brad from the Ice Circle Rhinestone brads. Use a chop stick or small paint brush and gently roll the edges of the paper up around the chop stick. Attach to card with brad or Mini Glue Dots.
