My card today uses the beautiful Flutter and floral dies and Sophisticated script stamps from Concorde and 9th.
I have seen in blog land people using brushes with distress inks so I bought some cheap make up brushes just to see how or if it would work, and it did work :)
I knew I wanted an inky background for my card and I think by using the brushes with distress inks gives a good coverage and can go on lighter than when using a blending tool so perfect for those not wanting heavily saturated colour.
Of course you can add as much or as little as you want.
Once I had added the ink to my water colour card, and flicked some water and gold glimmer mists for some extra detail.
I then stamped the sentiment in black archival ink.
I die cut two of the butterflies and made sure to keep them whole.
Next I die cut another four butterflies from thick white card and adhered two to each other.
I placed them back in to the empty space on my panel and went about assembling the die cuts back into place.
The coloured butterflies wee given a dusting of perfect pearls and added on to the white die cuts and then covered with glossy accents.
To finish I added some sequins and dots of gold stickles.
Thanks for looking.
