Cards and techniques with Rita

Hey there bloggers!
Rita Barakat here and I am so excited to share
this project with you!
I had so much fun playing with stamps and Gelatos, and meeting so
many lovely ladies all weekend at the
Scrapbook Expo that I had to bring you a sample on the blog!

The stamps I used were the
and the 18th Century Proclamation stamp.
I stamped my paper with the Stampers big brush., I used watercolor paper.

Then I colored the butterfly image in with
    PITT Artist Pens in reds and yellows.
When I was finished with the butterfly I added
color all over the page with Gelatos !
After I had the colors I wanted I went over the butterfly with a thin layer
of Scrap Happy Glue. I waited until it was dry then added
Such a fun project! You should try this!
