Hi everyone. A birthday card today using the Creative Individuals stamp Fly and Be Free. I used Brushos and a bit of added Inktense Pencil and blending with some Distress Inks.
I started with the Brushos in Violet and Sea Green on my glass mat with water and applied to the card using a piece of acrylic as I find this makes them easier to use. I did each colour separately and dried in between. I then stamped using Versafine Imperial Purple Ink and added some extra colour on the circles and the butterfly using the Mustard Yellow Inktense Pencil, taking the colour from the tip with the waterbrush. I also added some white pencil here and there and I used some Clear Wink of Stella on the butterfly wings. I cut the piece down a bit leaving room for the sentiment to be added at the bottom of the 6" square card, again using the Imperial Purple Ink and heat embossed it with WOW Clear Embossing Powder. I then blended some Wilted Violet Distress Ink around the edges and also blended a little more on to the wings as I felt they needed to be darkened a bit so that they stood out better.Thank you for visiting my blog today and I'll see you again soon.
