I've just had a super fun weekend: Marina from My Perfect Life has been visiting me here in Finland and we had such lovely time! Yesterday evening (and night...) we got quite productive and made several cards together. This is the first out of the 3 cards I made in one evening, I'll post the 2 other cards tomorrow.
For this card I first created two "ink smooshed" backgrounds with inks, plastic sheet and water. I dry embossed the other bg to be my card base and then stamped some Sizzix butterflies to the other bg and die cut them out. The Simon Says Stamp sentiment was also stamped and added to the card front. This turned out very pretty in the end but me and Marina had a good giggle about my other background (the one where I ended up stamping the butterflies) because the red ink splashes looked like blood... So we called the butterflies "the massacre butterflies". :) Luckily the finished card looks nothing like those images we had in our mind!
I'll enter a new to me challenge, Butterfly Challenge. The current theme is to add texture and my dry embossing and the ink splashes work perfectly for the challenge, yay!
This is only my second post for this new blog of mine... If you are coming from my old blog and haven't yet clicked the follower button, please do! :) Happy crafting, everyone!
