More Butterflies


More butterflies for you today, inspired by lovely photo at The Card Concept.  I made a masterboard of butterflies using my new Distress Inks (Cracked Pistachio, Mermaid Lagoon, Abandoned Carol and Fossilised Amber).  The purplish shades come from the mix of inks.  I cut the masterboard into four, selected this piece and stamped one of the butterflies in Versafine Onyx Black.

And then I added splatters :)


I'm also entering it into Simon Says Wednesday Challenge, Use Your Favourite Technique or Product.  Erm, Distress Inks and splattering!



I'm over at STAMPlorations tonight with a photo tutorial on this little pointillist hummingbird.  Pop on over and take a look!

  9. Gorgeous card, Shirley! And a very big thank you for my beautiful birthday card - you are such a sweetheart for remembering. Your card was such a tonic as I received a load of cards that seemed to say 'you are nearly an OAP' in their design! Please let me know when its your birthday as i'd like to return the compliment. Thanks again, Jo x
