Resist Butterflies

Good evening everyone,

Well, obviously, I didn't get back to the computer last night, and I have just come home from a very LONG day in town with my husband. (This is NOT a recommended activity for the women of the world!), so today has been a no play day for me...How sad is that?

I did finish this little resist project late last night. (The reverse Joseph's Coat is still there but not ready for upload!). I stamped the butterflies with Versamark and then brayered over the top with the Nostalgic Kaleidacolour. When brayering this time, I just bumped the brayer here and there in all sorts of directions, so the result is bits of colour all over the place. Then I overstamped a few of the butterflies with StazOn.

Materials
Stamps: Hero Arts Clear Stamps CL140 Thinking of You Messages, Hero Arts CL115 Designer Butterflies
Inks: Versamark, StazOn Black, Kaleidacolour Nostalgia
Cardstock: Bazzill, White Gloss
Other: Brads, Brayer

Michelle - this card turned out absolutely great - and I just love how the coloring turned out...and trust me - learned the lesson about spending all day with the hubby!

Love how this turned out with the dark iridescent look of the purple...and then the dramatic black butterflies - sooooo pretty.

You are the queen of techniques :) Any tips for getting the black butterflies nice & crisp like that? I never can...

Oh...by the way, it's very pretty.

This is terrific. I am not good with a brayer. Mine does not like me. Super technique.
