It’s a Beautiful Day!

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!
