Hi it's Brenda here with you today.
I so love playing with the oxide and butterflies together I have another design for you today.
I found some pieces in my bits box that I was really happy with when I did them and I'm still happy with them now and rather than let them just sit there I decided to retrieve them and make a couple of cards. I thought these infusions and stencil backgrounds would make the perfect backdrop.
Whether it's because of Spring I don't know but I seem to have butterflies on my mind and I took one of Tim's stamps and his oxides and using peeled paint, broken china and walnut stain I stamped two mixed colour butterflies and before I knew it I had spritzed one with water - I just wanted to see what it would do .......
....... my brain was working overtime so I quickly heat dried the watery mess and re-stamped the butterfly again over the top and look what happened once I had cut them both out ........ one beautiful crisp and multi coloured butterfly and one beautifully smudged looking one - I don't think I can choose between them so I'm pretty glad I had enough backgrounds to make two cards.
I continued on with some more edge inking and sentiment gathering until I was happy to assemble the cards together.
I kept it fairly simple even though I sat for ages trying to add other embellishments and stamps that I knew would clutter the design and spoil it.
Thanks for stopping by today.
