Birthday Butterfly


Today I have a quick card that I made for a friend's birthday.

I took a watercolor cardstock and stamped the butterfly from Mudra using Versamark ink. It is then embossed using gold embossing powder and heat gun. I then used the smooshing technique for the background. Took Peacock Feathers and Salty Ocean distress inks on an acentate sheet, and sprayed a fine mist of water. Once the colors blended, I placed the cardstock face down on the acetate sheet. That gives a beautiful background. To add more interest, I sprayed a little of Lime Splash from Itsy Bitsy's Color Splash. The green added a great effect. Then I splattered a few drops of Hot Pink from Color Splash. Once I was satisfied with the bg, I mounted the panel onto my base white cs and added a sentiment from Mudra's Let's Party stampset using Versafine Onyx Black ink.
