Just Saying Hello

P1060442 (2)My second card was made using some of my recently purchased goodies!

Altnew’s Painted Butterflies is a new set for me, so it was a perfect choice to test out my Distress Oxide Inks.  I had used them to make backgrounds as used on this card (Peeled Paint) but it was fun to try some stamping.  The butterflies were stamped using Spiced Marmalade which I sprayed lightly with some pearlised water.  If you look carefully you can see it gave an uneven colour which is what I was after.  I then stamped the next layer with just the  ink and got a more concentrated pure colour.  The final layer was stamped with Memento – Rich Cocoa as well as some flicks.

Luckily, these colours suited the Colour Throwdown keyword: ctd 449 and I also used made Freshly Made Sketches 294.

Have a good week

I live in sunny Queensland, Australia with my husband and daughter. Since I was a child, I have always loved to create and have enjoyed all kinds of crafts, sewing and painting. China painting helped develop my understanding of colour and design. Over the last few years card making has taken up a major part of my crafting time as I love to play with new techniques and mediums. Since beginning my blog, entering various challenges has encouraged me to grow my skills and creativity.
