Hi friends, Happy Easter!
Easter means free days from work and extra time for playing with stamps from my SSS haul a couple of weeks ago... I restrained myself from buying craft goodies from the beginning of January to the end of March but I don't think if it necessarily was a good thing -3 long months to have a look of everything you WILL buy when you shop again. ;) Anyway, the gorgeous Butterfly Beauty stamp set by Concord & 9th was one of those sets that found it's way to my shopping basket and today is my first time using it in a card. I used all the large 3 butterfly stamps on top of each other. The two bottom layers I stamped with Distress Inks and water (using MISTI let me stamp as many times I wanted to build up color) and the top layer I did with white pigment ink for a short of "ghosted" look. I added white gel pen dots. The splatters are made with DI:s, splatter stamp and water -I find this much easier and faster than using paintbrush. The sentiment is from the same stamp set. Do click the first photo larger to see all the details of the butterfly. She is very pretty, what a stamp!
I'd like to enter:
