Grungy Butterfly

Hi! Thanks for visiting our blog today! It’s been a very busy start to the week here.. packaging lots of gorgeous stencils, designing awesome new stuff for 2018 and of course packing and sending lots of orders to our wonderful customers and retailers! We’ve also been planning our October shows on Create and Craft TV… get the 27th & 28th in your diary!

Today we have some superb inspiration for you from Eileen Godwin…

Hello – I’ve been playing with Distress Oxide Inks whilst trying to create a birthday card for my friend Elaine (aka Archie).

I’ve used:
The reverse, white side, of Centura Pearl card
A Tim Holtz Stencil ‘Shatter’ along with some DecoArt Media Crackle Paste
Faded Jeans, Spiced Marmalade, Seedless Preserves and Peeled Paint Distress Oxide Inks
Plus, one of my favourite stamps from Visible Image

the Butterfly from the ‘Live Life Now’ set and Black Archival ink.

I wanted a sort of abstract ‘look’! So, after the paste was dry I squished the inks onto my mat then dabbed,
painted and dribbled the inks onto my cardstock, along with a little water until I was happy with the result
before stamping the Butterfly image twice to finish.

The ‘friend’ stamp is from my stash.

Thanks for looking today.

Back soon.
