Everything Wendy Vecchi – Making Art Challenge #12

EWVMAC#12 This week’s challenge at the Everything Wendy Vecchi yahoo group has three parts:  use at least one of Wendy’s Studio 490 Stamps, stamp on patterned paper, and use a saying in a bookplate.

I used just part of a stamp from the Artfully Said set, taking “Believe” for my bookplate. The flourishes are from the Botanical Art set.

The bookplate and butterfly are from Tim Holtz’s Sizzix dies. Loved using Clearly for Art modeling film on the butterfly! I can see using this much more now that I understand it.

I used Ranger’s Glue & Seal to adhere the modeling film to patterned paper (Bella Blvd.), then once it dried just heated it up to make it soft enough to mold to the shape I wanted. I’d heard how to do it for months now but doing is believing and it’s easier than I thought.

I encourage you to join in on the yahoo group – there are no obligations and you can play along every week or just whenever time permits.   Have a great week!

Your comments are very much appreciated!
