Over on my brand new team facebook group page we've had a bit of a party weekend with challenges and prizes and lots of fun.
One of the creative challenges was to make a card inspired by this painting (from Hannah's bedroom.)
I decided to try cutting one of the big butterflies from watercolour paper. Then I selected some reinkers (inspired by some of the colours in the print.) So Saffron, Lost Lagoon, Cajun Craze, Blackberry Bliss and a touch of Basic Black. I sprayed the butterfly with water and dripped reinkers.
Once I'd dripped lots of colour I sprayed it again with water. (I have an empty Stampin' Mist bottle that I've filled with water and clearly labelled so I don't mix it up.)
Now leave it to dry.
In the meantime I quite liked the leftover blobs of watery ink. I decided to pop a piece of naturals white cardstock under my damp inky base paper and press.
I added some stamping using the Butterfly Basics stamp set. I REALLY love the netting stamp from this set and the dashed border too. I used the greeting from this set as well.
I really love this card. Can't wait to try it in some more colours.
Tip: Use lots of the lighter colours and only the TINIEST bit of the darker ones - the dark ones really take over.
I enjoy cards where they turn out differently each time and there's an element of random in how they end up looking.
