Beautiful Butterflies

Hello again!   Today I'm sharing a card using Honeybee Stamps.   Haven't heard of them yet?  You should check them out!   Seriously cute stuff!

I wanted to create a kind of "Zentangle" background with the pretty butterflies and swirls, so I stamped them with MFT Hybrid ink in Black Licorice.   I blended the background using Distress Inks and a new-to-me product recommended by Mendi Yoshikawa - Tsukineko Jumbo Ink Daubers.   They were a lot easier to use (for me) than the Ranger ink tools.   I'm sold!!  I'll need to get daubers for all the Distress colors.   I mounted the butterfly panel on black cardstock and placed it near the top of my card base.

I stamped the sentiment towards the bottom and for added interest, I used my Scan-n-Cut machine to cut out five of the butterfly images.   I glued them to each other only at the center so that the wings can fluff up for added dimension.   A bit of Wink of Stella glitter on the butterfly was the finishing touch.

Thanks for stopping by, friends!   I'd love it if you take a minute to subscribe to my blog and/or follow me on Instagram or Facebook!
