Butterfly Collage

Hello lovely peeps!   Welcome!  Lynda Joy here with more inspiration for you from our Technique Junkies March New Stamp Release.
For my card today, I chose this beautiful Big Butterfly Collage stamp.  I love 'whole card' stamps like this, and this one is a beauty!  
I inked it up with Tim Holtz distress ink in Antique Linen, using my Misti.  This way I could see the image and where all the components were.  I then used Tombow markers on the stamp to place color on the individual areas.  I used a paintbrush with water to pull out the color, then overstamped again with the Misti.  I continued in this fashion until I reached my desired look.

When I took it out of the Misti, I used distress ink around the edges, and added some colored pencil highlights and shading here and there.  Some embroidery thread and beads along the edge, and sequins on the card finish it off.

I hope you will stop by our TJ Facebook Group .  There are lots of ideas and inspiration there from my Design Team comrades.  We would love to see some of your cards or projects there.
