So Suzy Fancy Butterfly

Hi Everyone,

we at So Suzy Stamps are having a big inspiration post today - all the DT girls made cards - you get a glimpse of them on the collage picture:

I thought, this gorgeous butterfly needs some ink - I have only used it once before and it is much too pretty to sit around and collect dust..... I also really like the sentiment - the pretty font and what it says - just great for many occasions!

My stamp supplies:

I started out stamping the butterfly with Versafine ink onto Bristol paper - this ink stamps detail really well and it is my go  to ink for most things.

I generously added water color in yellow and greens

More color and made it drip down

then I thought its too much color and I took some off with a roll of paper towels

Added some more color to the butterflies only

until I was happy with the result. Added some splatters.

Stamped the sentiment onto black card stock and cut a strip of PP.

Added generous amount of Wink of Stella.

Glued it all together - the sentiment is mounted with foam tape. I added two large sequins. they look more green in real live, not blue like in the picture.

Happy Stamping!

You're right, that butterfly deserved ink and color...and you did it perfectly. Love it with the drippy effect and the color you achieved is stunning.

Das liest sich nach viel Arbeit für eine tolle Karte.
ich frage mich, wie du das mit den Spritzern immer so gut hinbekommst. Bei mir gibt es dicke klumpen oder nichts. :-(((
Ich bewundere deine vielfältigen Ideen und die hervorragenden Ausführungen.
Genieß das Wochenende.

Wow! This looks awesome.
Thanks for sharing how it was made. I'm not great at inky stuff,
but I might have to give this ago.
