Fluttering By....................

 I tried something new- Water stamping with Distress inks using the colors from a challenge at Gingersnaps. 
  I used Broken China, Faded Jeans and Dusty Concord Distress Inks. I stamped the Mini Cloisonne butterfly from Michael Strong on the background using the water stamping. Then, in black stamped the Cloisonne Butterfly twice and raised the Rt side of the wing with dimensionals.  I spritzed the larger butterfly with Glimmer Mist and added Sakura Gelly Roll pen for accent.   The sentiment is a digi from Create with TLC.

 I stamped with a butterfly theme for the Splitcoaststampers Hope you Can Cling To  Challenge 10/13 which is to use a butterfly on your card.

 Challenges:
Gingersnaps- color challenge Turquoise, Blur and purple
One Stop Craft- No Designer Paper
PaperWorks Co- Inspirational photo - great inspiration for my layout!


Thanks for stopping by!
