It was a cold, blustery day today. I thought about my garden, and sitting in my back yard paradise during the spring and summer months, and how much I miss that. So, I decided to do the next best thing, and play in my studio.
I've had this Big Butterfly stamp from Technique Junkies for a while, and decided today was the day she would fly.
On gray card stock, using my Misti and TH distress inks, I inked the Big Butterfly stamp with various shades of ink, and stamped it several times, until I achieved the color and intensity I wanted.
I used some distress gray ink to distress the edges, and create spatters on the card. For the strips on the right side of the card, I distressed a piece of the gray card stock with the same colors as the butterfly, then stamped the wing design onto it. The other strip is just dyed with a gray distress ink pad.
A few Studio Katia droplets finish off the card.
I used these Technique Junkies stamps on my card:

I am adding my card to the Sunday Stamps challenge . This week's theme is Winter Solitude, using these colors....
I tried to get the colors as close as I could. On my card they are slightly more muted than in the picture I took.
Thanks for stopping by. I will go and color some flowers now, so that I can feel as though I'm in my garden!
Thanks so much for visiting. I appreciate you spending time with me, and your inspiring and kind comments.
