Fluttering with distress inks

Hello lovely blog readers

Today I have another of those cards I made for the parents stash to share…


For this I did plenty of blending with Distress Inks and then splattered with water.   Next I stamped the butterfly (Indigo Blu) randomly all over.

To make the sentiment pop I heat embossed it with black embossing powder and also added some versa mark to the edges roughly and heat embossed that too.


I added some funky fibres to the tag and raised it on the card blank for some dimension.

The envelope got some ink and a butterfly to match too.

Entering this into the Anything Goes challenge at Craft Your Passion Challenge blog. 

Happy crafting!
