Glittered Butterfly


I'm still having fun playing with my distress oxide inks and the MB Vivienne and Darla butterfly dies. I die cut the butterfly with pink, black, and white cardstock, layering one on the other, and then filled in the spaces with Nuvo glitter drops in shades of aqua, pink, and clear. I randomly added more drops on the background and then cut it with a LIl Inker stitched rectangle die. The sentiment was die cut from black with a GMD die set, and all was attached to a pink card base. This card is going to the 14-yr old daughter of a long-time friend of mine. I think she'll be happy with all the girly colors and sparkle.

I'm sharing this with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge which is to "splatter it." I love splattering with these oxide inks, because no two backgrounds ever look alike!

Take care and have an awesome Friday!
