Distress Ink Butterfly


Here's my card for the Butterfly Challenge #52 - F is for fancy folds and/or the color of Fuchsia. The base butterfly was done with a SU! Bigz die, and it was sponged with several different colors of distress inks. It began with Wilted Violet, but I wanted to add some highlights, so I sponged on some Picked Raspberry which pretty much turned it darker purple, so I left it alone and decided to layer it with some Memory Box Darla and Vivienne butterfly dies. The card base, Elizabeth Crafts Designs die-cut sentiment, and top layered butterfly all began with white cardstock sponged with Picked Raspberry ink before cutting. The white card base was done with a CB embossing folder.

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great day whatever you do!

I 'm glad you resisted the urge to keep adding colour to your butterfly as the result here is lovely. That back colour especially.
Thankyou for fluttering by my challenge. hugs Mrs A.

Princess Judy had linked to this pretty card as her inspiration for something she's made, so of course recognizing your name, zipped over to see what you'd inspired. Easy to see why...love the Design, color and just beautifully CAS yet lots of color & texture. TFS
