Stuck on an Island...

Hello friends!
DSC_0430

Have you ever thought of what you would bring with you if you were stuck on an island?
While I was stamping, I thought of this question and immediately, I know that I would pack...
s
Butterfly Charmer (Penny Black)
 is coming with me! I think as long as I have inks and paper, I can make many cards with this background stamp. I simply can not stop making cards with it! LOL

Do you know which stamp you would take with you to an island?  
My inquisitive mind likes to know.

 I started out with stamping the Butterfly Charmer in brown ink and with MISTI's help, I clear-embossed it. I had lots of fun applying watercolors with Kuretake (36).

hugs and kisses
It gives me such satisfaction when I can add various colors to each butterfly.

I highly recommend that you stamp a couple of large background stamps and do the coloring in front of a TV...which is exactly what I did. So therapeutic and relaxing!
Here are my previous versions of Butterfly Charmer. (I am not done yet!).

Thanks for stopping by!

Can totally understand how you'd take this set- it's so versatile; but particularly in your hands. I always love when you take one stamp set and do lots of techniques with it; so inspiring xx

Beautiful card! I have too many sets that I like to choose just one...

Harriet said...

Beautiful card. One stamp...can't imagine. That would be like choosing one child. I don't think I could take enough paper etc. for an island. I do know I would take a book/books.

Kara Lynne said...

I can see why you would bring that set! Your gold embossing and watercolored butterflies are amazing, I love this! Just thinking about that question makes me anxious, I could never pick just one!

Another gorgeous card using this stamp, Virginia! Love the versatility of this stamp, and that you paired it with such a stunning sentiment! I think I would have to bring one of my Altenew stamps sets...with some ink and paper, I would be all set :)

Wow. This is stunning. Some of the pictures look like gold embossing. That's a great color of brown ink. I'm ashamed to say, I haven't inked up my butterfly stamp yet. It's sitting on my desk whimpering at me to use it. Not enough hours in the day. Think I'll take your suggestion...stamp it, emboss it and color it during the baseball game on TV.
