{YNS Peek} I love you THIS much!

Today is a special day...Yesterday the Your Next Stamp designers began showing off some fun new sets that will be released in a few short days! Today, I am showing off a fun new Ellie stamp. This one's called Butterfly Ellie and comes with a few cute sentiments and an assortment of little accent butterflies!


I used some old MME paper that I drag out whenever the butterfly bug bites....paired up with this image and the Verve butterfly die, it's a pretty straightforward theme I have going on here;) Since Ellie seems to have her arms stretched out in an 'I love you THISSSS much' kind of fashion....well, I thought I should make a big butterfly chain with one of those lil butterfly stamps I mentioned earlier. It almost looks like a paper butterfly chain! They are all popped up on mini foam dots for that added dimension. Her dress and headband were paper-pieced and I added some grass in with my copics. I added some SU rhinestones to the corners and butterfly bodies and a Recollections flourish.
I stamped the XOXOXO sentiment vertically onto a MFT dienamic tab.


Honestly, I'm not thrilled about my colouring on this one, but I was warching a shark movie, it was really late, my eyes were tired and the lamp wasn't providing real good lighting....so the odds were stacked against me! But I'd say she's still pretty cute!


Check out the YNS blog to see a list of more designers previewing some of the next release today!
