So this week I finally got a chance to play with the butterfly thinlets dies. I totally fell in love with them as soon as I saw them in the Occasions catalogue, and have created a few projects using the actual die cuts which I will post next week.
This card though... it was a happy accident. I was trying a masking technique for which I would usually use a spritzer, but I didn't have a reinker in white. So I played around with putting the die cut on the ink pad, pushing down with a clearblock, then carefully peeling off the die and stamping it using another clear block. Then I noticed the impression of the butterfly in my inky block, so I stamped that too. It was really inky so I stamped it few times, and loved the imperfect prints it gave.I like the arty look of this card, its messy and its fun. It actually inspired a few more of these arty style cards.
I think people will either love it or hate it, its very different to what I usually create
I love the texture of the craft ink on the black cardstock.
Sometimes it is really good to be forced to go outside your comfort zone and try something new.
