I got a box of goodies I had ordered yesterday, so had to pull out some new Distress inks for this one. Did the background strips by spraying some cracked pistachio and mermaid lagoon distress stain on my craft sheet, and then wiping it onto cream card stock with a baby wipe. I then added a bit of gesso, scraped on with an old credit card, then sponged on some gathered twigs ink around the edges. I used some of the excess from my piece to stamp the butterfly from Each Day in gathered twigs. Then I totally forgot it was distress ink and used a water brush, effectively muddying the whole butterfly. So I added some more mermaid lagoon and cracked pistachio, then once it was dry stamped the butterfly over it again. I hand cut the butterfly and finished off it's body and antennae with some cinnamon Stickles.
The do not worry sentiment is stamped onto a nestabilities circle, sponged with gathered twigs. The card base is embossed with an Anna Griffin embossing folder and I finished off by tucking a bit of vintage lace trim behind my vertical panel.
That's all from me today. Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you're having a super awesome start to your weekend!
