{Technique Tuesday} Flutterfly Highlight

I hope you're all having a lovely weekend! It's been a scorcher of a summer here in Toronto with extremely high temperatures and very little rain. It's finally raining today, which is really nice for the plants and gives us a break from the heat. It's the perfect day to post a rainbow card featuring Technique Tuesday's mini stamp set Flutterfly from the July 2018 release.

This artsy butterfly is the only image in the set but you can do so much with it, especially with repetitive stamping. Three are four sentiments in the set for mixing and matching and it's perfect for creating uplifting cards. I used all three of the adjectives and added scripted words from Flowers for Her to create a custom sentiment. I lined up all of the words in my MISTI stamping tool and stamped them with jet black archival ink.

Using an acrylic block, I stamped the butterfly with five distress inks (linked below) on watercolour cardstock, then used a wet brush to create the watercolour drips. I splattered black velvet color shine on the top half of the card. I also used black gesso to paint a border on the white linen cardstock card base.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
