Butterflies & More !

Hi Friends, I'm here with another colorful card. It's made using my favorite ink of all times - Distress Inks. I can't seem to work without them anymore. Whenever I decide to make cards, I just happen to take out all of those yummy colors of Distress Inks that I own. And I have quite a bunch. Well here's my card for today !

For this card I stamped the butterflies & the sentiment randomly on a white card stock, using my Cavallini Stamps with my Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. After which I cut the paper into 4 strips (doesn't need to be of the same width). After that I blended distress inks with my foam applicators in a circular motion and stuck them onto a Black Card Stock leaving a little space in between each strip. I also stamped 2 large butterflies seperately on a white paper using black ink and pieced it with my Cutter Bee Scissors (Another fav. tool) I stuck these hand pieced butterflies on the inked card stock with my foam dots to give it some dimension. Lastly, I applied Crystal Stickles to some of the smaller butterflies for the extra pop !

Supplies Used :
Card Stock : Fabriano (Elle Erre)
Distress Inks : Tattered Rose,Dusty Concord, Faded Jeans, Crushed Olive, Wild Honey, Mustard Seed, Peeled Paint, Tumbled Glass, Chipped Sapphire, Pine Needles and Barn Door.
Ink : Memento Tuxedo Black
Foam Dots
Stamps : Cavillini Butterfly Stamp Set
Stickles Glitter Glue :  Crystal
