Back for a second post today- Yes, I was a busy crafter this weekend!
Can you believe that Mother's Day is right around the corner? I whipped up a card for my Mom so I could get it in the mail. It takes a few days to get to Florida.
I inked up my new April KOTM from Unity.
I was drawn to the large butterfly in the set and decided to use distress inks for water coloring them.
I did not want to take away from the butterflies, so I kept the layout simple, with a cs strip for the sentiment. Doilies add a bit of girly-ness to the card.
I used my MISTI to stamp my butterflies in the color of choice, and then once colored and dried, I stamped the image again in dark brown. I love how this turned out. The purples in the photo did not photograph well; the purple butterfly and the purple mat are much closer in color irl.
I am playing along in a few challenges~
