Butterfly Hi.

How about flowers and butterflies and some reds? Sounded good to me this morning, and now that I have it done, I dare say I like this.

This is similar to the Ghosting Technique by Loll Thompson, found in my Tutorial Ideas, but I take it a bit further. I am using my Stay-tion for this, as the magnets hold the stencil firmly in place.

My stencil is from A Colorful Life Design. Remember when shopping at ACLD to use my discount code of Kia10.

My background is done with Distress Oxide inks and I die cut the oxide background, then placed my stencil over the piece and spritzed heavily with a mixture of Perfect Pearls instead of water. I wait a few seconds then lay a paper towel down to soak up the excess water.

Once my piece is dry, and it must be dry, I move on to my next step which is to pick a flower on the stencil and with dye inks heavily sponge on the colour for just the one flower in between 2 of the ghosted stencil flowers. As with the ghosting, I spritzed with the Perfect Pearl mixture, but I mop it up rather quickly.

I did this using 3 different dye inks, each from Wendy Vecchi Make Art, randomly placing the stencil for this, as you can see in this close-up.

Here I have my card turned upside down and am doing the flower that is in the top left corner of the finished card.

Once the flowers are done, I splatter the piece with Midas Touch Shimmering Pen, and let dry. I add the 2 stamped butterflies along the top right side of the piece using the Carnation Red ink, then stamp the sentiment using Memento Ink in Jet Black.

To put it together I added fun foam to the back of my panel and attached it to my card base, and finished with a few drops of Nuvo Crystal Drops.

As I had time I finished the inside while I had everything out, once again using the Penny Black die and the stencil and inks.

I hope you have enjoyed this card today, and thank you for visiting. Following are Affiliate Links to the products that I have used for this card, at no extra cost to you.
