Butterfly Blue

For this card, I used my last piece of alcohol ink colored paper that I had created in order to duplicate Tim's creation on my last post.
I needed a card to send to my sister to say "thank you" for my stay. As usual, I had limited time.......it was about 9:00 pm & I wanted it done before bed. I thought this piece of alcohol ink colored paper would be an easy start to put together something quick....... So I thought.... I finished it that night but much later than anticipated. It was worth it........I love how it turned out!

I used 2 of Tim's stamp sets: Fairytale Frenzy and Floral Tattoo. The images in black (verse, butterfly and stem with hearts) are from Fairytale Frenzy. There are various stamps from Floral Tattoo in the background. I can't begin to tell you all the steps. I stamped until I was satisfied with the outcome. The darker blue images were stamped with Ranger Pigment Denim ink. I rubbed Distress Broken China ink around the edges.

The butterfly was cut from a piece of clear acrylic packaging from a Spellbinders die set (I trim the ridges off all the bigger packages & save the flat pieces for future projects.) I stamped it with Archival ink & cut it out. I added Aqua alcohol ink to the back side. It's glued in place with Glossy Accents. I also added Glossy Accents to the bigger hearts & flowers. It's not really apparent in the photo.

I had fun stamping this......even if it keep up late. I never mind staying up late to stamp......it's the next day getting up for the work that's so hard. That's when I'm tired.......

Thanks for visiting!
Until next time......smiles to you!
