Tiny Textures is a fun stamp set that allows you add a splash of something fun to your scrapbook pages or will help you to make a cool stamped background to your card projects. The “Just Because” sentiment from the set is ideal to add the finishing touch to a quick, but thoughtful card!

For my project today, I used a few of the Tiny Texture images to stamp a background in the Gina K ink pads of Jelly Bean Green & Ocean Mist. Then I stamped the sentiment from the set in Blue Raspberry ink. The beautiful Flutterby Butterfly die was added as the main focus. Check out my tutorial below to see how I colored them with my Spectrum Aqua markers.
Step 1: Die cut the Flutterby Butterfly using Spectrum Noir Watercolor Paper three times.
Step 2: Using the Peacock Blue Spectrum Aqua Marker, add color directly from the marker to the watercolor paper along the edges of the butterfly wings & the center.
Step 3: Using the Teal, randomly add color to the inside wings of the die cut.
Step 4: Using the Aquamarine, add color near the center of the butterfly die cut.
Step 5: Next add Bud Green randomly on the wings. Note: Leave some white space on the butterfly die cut.
Step 6: Using a waterbrush, blend the colors.
Step 7: Add glitter to the butterfly wings with Ranger Stickles.
