Every year at this same time, Splitcoaststampers has an event put on by the Dirty Dozen Design Team, which I love to participate in. I am proud to say I am one of the Dirty Girls and have hosted two of the challenges for this years event. But, I have also made samples for the other hostesses, and this card is one of those. I can’t tell you what the challenge entails, but you can visit here to get all the scoop.
I can tell you, if you don’t already know, that I love colour ~ colour makes me happy. And this card has a lot of colour, done using distress inks and some shimmer mist. I wanted to use a butterfly, but wanted it to stand out against my background, so I added the mixed media die that I dragged through some Daniel Smith watercolours. I painted the butterfly using Zig brushes and stamped the sentiment using black ink.
