Butterfly Flutterby Card by Gemma

I have a 8x8 thank you card to share with you all today. A little bit of inspiration for this months challenge 'A little bit of colour', I have used a limited colour pallet and embraced my white space (a little). There is still time to join in the challenge this month for your chance to win. 


I cut a piece of card to fit my card blank and stamped one of the wonderful butterflies from the butterflies stamp plate in the upper right corner using a Candied Apple Distress Oxide pad. I then sprayed the ink with water and stood the card up so the ink would drip down the card. 


After drying the ink, I stamped randomly over the whole card with the same stamp and Abandoned Coral Distress Oxide. After spraying the ink with water and allowing it to drip, I dabbed away some of the ink as I wanted these butterflies to be incomplete and the fade into the background. After drying I deciced to add very small amounts of yellow ink in places.


Using bits of scrap card my mask areas off I stamped the plaid background stamp using Vintage Photo Distress Oxide over the top.


Once all my ink was dry I added some washi take and stamped the words thank you. I painted the letters with a white paint pen, which I outlined with a black pen. Then it was time to doodle on and around the butterfly with black and white pens.



Thanks for stopping by
