For this card I wanted to try a technique that I’ve used many times before, but it has a twist that Kristina Werner did in the newest Online Card Classes: Stretch Your Stamps Class.
I inked the background with the new Summer Seasonal Distress Inks, dried it, and then stamped a script background with VersaMark Ink. I heat embossed in clear and then rubbed black ink over the whole card. After wiping away the excess, I got this super cool look with the multicoloured text showing.
I inked a butterfly stamp with same colours and misted to blend, then stamped on a scrap card. I cut out the butterflies, wrapped coloured string around for the antennae, then adhered them with rolled glue dots.
I stamped the sentiment on a previously made background card, cut it out, stuck it on and the card was done!
Love how the multicoloured background turned out – I’ll be using this again for sure!
And the dimension of the butterflies with the shine of the embossing is great!

I love how the colors pop off the black background. TFS
Thanks Alice, it’s a cool technique!
