Birds and Bees month - with a twist...

Hello, Lisa here with another inspirational look at April's theme - Birds and Bees. 
But with a twist... I've used butterflies.

I used The Artistic Stamper A5 Insects and Butterflies stamp set, which has a gorgeous collection of winged creatures. 

My previous creations for this theme included bees and birds. So, this time I went with a more pretty version of a winged creature - butterflies. 

Of course, there is no limit to what winged creature you could have using this technique. 

Here is my creation...

I coloured a piece of white card with Distress Inks using Mustard Seed, Cracked Pistachio and Blueprint Sketch. I then sprayed the inked background with water and left to dry.

I used The Artistic Stamper 3 x 3 Harlequin Mask with the same colours of ink to add some depth.

I then stamped the butterflies and coloured them them with Carved Pumpkin, Wilted Violet and Picked Raspberry Distress Inks.

I stamped the word 'fly' using black ink then 
over-stamped with Carved Pumpkin Distress Ink, and lightly brushed Blueprint Sketch ink over the top. 

To finish, I matted the background on to Kraft Card.

Thanks for popping by.
Toodles for now,
Lisa xxx
