I have a pretty quick card this week. I try to alternate my posts between simple and complicated. Sometimes it’s nice to just crank one out, right?
I used a new distress ink called Picked Raspberry. It’s so pretty – kinda reminds me of Stampin’ Up!’s Melon Mambo. I spritzed the Full Bloom Hollyhocks stamp with water and stamped it onto the inked cardstock to get that reverse watercolor look. I’m sure there is a name for this technique but I don’t know it.
The butterflies are from my Beautiful Wings embosslit (I call it a Sizzlit in the video. Wrong.). I actually use this die a lot – it’s great for scrapbooking too. The butterflies are embossed and cut in one run through your Big Shot.
Enjoy and have a great week!
