Butterfly Note

Hi Everyone,
I have been playing around with my alcohol inks. I made this panel using purples an d blue and was not so happy with how it looked, but I thought It would be perfect under that pretty Poppy Stamp die cut. I won that die cut from Poppy Stamps a little while ago by playing in their challenge - THANK YOU Poppy Stamps, I love it!


The sentiment is an old set from Papertrey. The paper under it is from one of those envelopes you get in the mail - you may want to check out their insides - sometimes its really pretty! I mounted the sentiment with foam tape. I also added more little butterflies - those are by Memory Box and some sequins.


I love how this turned out - alcohol inks = really cool!

That beautiful background works great behind that very pretty die cut. Great way to use it when you're not too sure of it...however I am sure it was fantastic! The sentiment and how you've done it, is perfect x Well done on the poppy die win x

Once again your card is amazing!! You rocked using the alcohol inks!

You've certainly made an impact with your new butterflies die; how stunning they are in their alcohol-ink colours! Swooning!

Amazing save. Alcohol inks of glossy (vs Yupo)? Love the shine

I love that die set, lucky you winning that. The inked panel looks fab poking through the empty space. :)

Yep. This is most definitely a winner. First of all, that alcohol ink background pulls your eyes right out of your head...but covered with that amazing die, it just captures one's interest immediately. And who knew that envelope lining could be so interesting...certainly, not me.
