Shimmery Butterfly Dreams


Hi Junkies, it's Holly posting today.  Remember last week when I shared a distressed collaged butterfly card that I stamped with black soot distress oxide ink?  I'm back this week to share another one but the process of creating this one is very different.  Last week, I started with an inky background paper.  Today, I started with a white sheet of paper.

I stamped the Butterfly Flourish Collage from Technique Junkies with Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink onto some white cardstock.  Instead of letting the ink dry, I immediately sprayed the stamped piece with Golden Olivine and Mixed Metal Shimmering Bliss sprays.  Because I sprayed right away, I was able to catch some of the oxide ink before it dried, and the sprays helped the black ink fade out and bleed a little bit around the edges of the stamped butterfly.  If you're going for a distressed look, this is perfect!  As a bonus, I was able to get a shimmery and distressed look - love that!!

I stamped the Big sentiment with the same Black Soot Distress Oxide ink but I only sprayed the Mixed Metal Shimmering Bliss over it.  It's so fun to see the gorgeous shimmer on this card.  You can get all these products from Technique Junkies - the stamps, the Shimmering Bliss, and the ink.  Use this code, TJ10Holly, when you check out and you'll save 10% off your order.  Have fun!
