Flutterby Dreams

Welcome

I had fun making this CAS card.  


I started with a piece of white linen textured card, and stenciled one of the butterflies from the STAMPlorations Flutterby stencil using Victorian Velvet and Worn Lipstick Distress inks.



The sentiment from the STAMPlorations Noteworthy set was stamped in Victorian Velvet. It did not stamp well, as I sometimes find with Distress Inks, so I touched it up with a fine paintbrush loaded with the ink.


The final details were to splatter the background with both inks, and add some sequins, and mount the panel over a bright pink base.
