Delicate Butterfly Trio

Hello friends,

This butterfly die from Crafter's Companion Spring/Summer Die Collection is one of my new favorites. It's called Delicate Butterfly.

On the white cardstock panel, under each butterfly, is a stamped mesh patterned image from Sheena's Ageing Beautifully set. To get the ink colores to coordinate with the butterflies, I stamped-off the color once before stamping on the white cardstock panel. I us this "stamping-off" technique all the time. It works great when you don't have an ink color that matches your paper or other elements.

Under the blue butterfly, I stamped a blue text strip - stamping the ink off once as well. The little black stamped butterfly and the "life" sentiment are from Sheena's Silhouette Garden set.  The ink splatters were done with ink color spray. I just love these colors together! I got inspiration to make this card from a design in one of my SU catalogs.

Thanks for stopping by today :)
