Dancing Wings for Sale on Etsy

I’ve just re-listed my Dancing Wings collage on Etsy. This was such fun to make.

I discovered Holly Berry House stamps at the last consumer Craft & Hobby Association Show in 2010. On-site I watched ladies make boutonnieres and was intrigued by the layering. You basically get 6 stamps in one! She is very generous and allows stamp owners to sell their creations, but of course the stamp design itself is copyrighted.

So at home I played with various iterations, and created the set above. I picked complementary colors and stamped the papers.

Then I cut out the outlines, making each piece a smaller version of the one before (the stamps come with instruction sheets).

Next were the background layers, inspired by butterfly words.

Last Christmas I was commissioned to make custom pairs with the favorite colors of two special young ladies.

While visiting family, it was a fun craft project with another girl.

The color combinations are endless, so if you’re interested in a custom piece, let me know.
