Inky Butterflies - Craft Mojo DT

Hello everyone... I'm back with my 2nd post for today, my DT card for Craft Mojo.

This one's a little bit different for me - I don't often get properly inky, although I do enjoy it... my hands were quite purple by the time it was finished!


I used Shaded Lilac and Seedless Preserves Distress Inks to make the background.  If you've never done this before it's very easy (but quite messy!)... just splodge the inks onto a craft mat, spray with water, wipe a piece of white card in the puddles and then dry it with a heat gun... I usually repeat this a couple of times until I'm happy with the result, so you need fairly thick card that will cope with the water and heat.

I added some spots using the border stamp from the Doodle Flowers set by Jane's Doodles in Hero Arts Soft Purple ink and the butterflies are from another Jane's Doodles set - the largest one is stamped on the background, and then stamped again and cut out so I could pop the wings up.

Off for a little catch up with your blogs now... hope you all have a lovely evening :o)

I love that ink water splot background! I don't think you'll catch me trying something like this though. I shy away from the messy stuff. I adore this card and its happy purple-ness though.
