Well actually everyday has been beautiful recently – I don’t think I remember having so many hot days in a row before! Today though the title actually refers to the name of a fab new stamp set – Beautiful Day – from the Occasions Catalogue! This set has both beautiful images perfect for colouring in many different ways, and it also has lovely sentiments to accompany them!
I coloured my butterfly using Stampin’ Blends which were so lovely to get nice soft colours and shading. I used Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral and Pink Pirouette in both the Dark & Light pens, and added some additional highlights using the Colour Lifter.
I finished off with some of the Calypso Coral 1/4″ Ombre Ribbon which is such a great shaded trim to coordinate with the blending! A touch of metallic never goes amiss so in this case I popped a little Gold Sequin Trim in too!
