Butterfly Stencil - Ink Art Designs DT post

Welcome to my blog..
thanks so much for stopping by...

Today I am sharing my make for

First I embossed the saying from 
Visable Image 
available at Ink Art Designs
Using Hickory Smoke distress oxide
and embossed with Clear


Using my Distress Ink Oxides
Worn Lipstick and Tarnished Rose

I sponged the inks through the Visable Image
butterfly stencil...
Just LUV IT !!

Using my fan brush and a bit of Nuvo Glitter Gloss
which I watered down a bit - I splattered all over.
(which you can't really see in this pic  - but does look cool)
And of course the edges and corners
are sponged with the pinks.

One of my old punches for the corners. 
All layered in greys and whites -

This is actually my first go at it.
The saying is not embossed - and I stamped it
over the stencil rather than before.

Added a bit of confetti glitter that I had recently 

So both cards are fairly simple - but the
final result I really liked.

These are the two main items used for the

Fairy lite...

This is my very first attempt at trying 
to make one of these !!

Watched a ton of Utubes and reading different instructions.
My first try was using Modge Podge - what a disaster!!
ripped paper etc - just an overall mess.

So I soaked that off and went with the 
Elmers glue with a bit of water added -
Oh my gosh what a difference.

So this is my end result - 
Thinking maybe a string of fairy lights
might look nicer than the one candle 
(not a real candle of course)
Actually put a bit of fake ivy on the inside
since I took this picture.

The top  with some ribbon and butterflies...

Didn't turn out too bad !!!

Masculine birthday card...??

Oh ya - 
Don't know why I always find it 
so hard to do a masculine card.

Well here it is ...

Cut the oval out - and used one of
my embossing folders.

The stamp in behind
is so old - red rubber - don't know where 
I got it from now.  but an old fav...

Inked it in different colours
then embossed clear.
Placed in behind.

My Tim Holtz man...layered on..
then layered the turquoise
and black.

Using my Nuvo Dream Drops
around the oval.

and 3 silver blings at the top
of the umbrella...

Anyways - hope he likes it....

Ken Oliver colour bursts.

The Fairy Wishes coin has silver embossed
around the edge.. and a bit of stickles 
on her wings. Used the Josie stamp.

with archival black.. and coloured in the eye with 
a bit of blue.
Cut up the saying and layered and a little
sponging with green around the edges.

On the backside - splattered some ink with my fan brush.

Added some splats - and of course the saying.

My Next one - 
Using Katzelcraft stamp - Ignase -
Just LUV him...
Kept it simple - But I stamped him first
onto the cardstock - then I did a second one
separately which I coloured and fussy cut out..
layered on top of the original stamp on the 
and used one of my 
Tim Holtz sayings.

The backside ...I used the
Harlequin Dinky stencil from
Thats Crafty -

Ink Art Designs!!!

Whoo Hoo 

Well here I am with my first post
So excited.

What I am sharing today is a card made
using the coffee filter technique for the
background with
Nuance powders onto glossy cardstock.

Using my Lavinia Stamps available

I stamped Harrietas house onto white cardstock - 
embossed in black then fussy cut out.

The saying I also embossed and cut out.
And layered them onto black cardstock.

Before adding all this on - I did my moon with some
marmalade distress ink.  And if you look closely
you can see some sparkles around the edges.

The corner I have stamped the Lavinia Fushia with Staz on ink.

Then layered the card and roughed up the edges of 
one of the layers.

We will be sharing tons of talent with you !!
