Big Butterfly

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.
