Butterfly Inspiration

Hello Everybody!

Don't you love it when you experiment and you like it?  You take that 50/50 chance.  It could turn out great....or another file for the trash bin.

Well between last night and this morning I took a chance on a technique I wanted to try.  And I think it worked.  I think ;)

Here's my card:

I used The Crafter's Workshop stencil Elevator Gate and Light Modeling Paste by Liquitex.  Here is TCW's picture of the stencil:

It's a little hard to look at but it produces beautiful results!  So I used the paste over my white card stock panel.  Then I took a flower stamp from Sparkle N Sprinkle's Stamp Set 429 Blossoms and stamped it into the bottom part of the modeling paste.  It's a crazy effect.  

I let it dry over night.  I wasn't so sure about it.  Then this morning I took a little broken china distress paint and watered it down with a water brush and painted the sky.  That seems to look pretty cool.  For the flower centers I used Close to My Heart Sunny Yellow Re-Inker which I also diluted with water.  Once those centers were painted I fell in love-or like anyways with the little scene I had created.

The butterfly die is from Cheery Lynn Designs.  Here is a side view of the card.  I think the shadow from the butterfly is cool. :)  Also, I inked the edges of the card with Dusty Concorde distress ink.  It needs just a little definition.

All of this wouldn't be possible without the wonderful inspirational photo at Inkspirational Challenges #37-photo inkspiration.  Yay! :)

Until next time my friends...what techniques are you waiting to try?
