Hello! The other day I was walking my dog Kirby and saw few butterflies flying around a field – Spring is really here, isn’t it? It inspired me to take out the Butterflies Stamp Set and create a feminine card. I wanted the butterfly to stand out and keep the card pretty clean, so I decided to take couple of Distress inks and my watercolor brush out from my drawers. Water splattering technique is very easy and you can always get different results, so it is like a surprise!
To start with my main layer, I took out Distress Watercolor Paper and stamped the Butterfly image using Versafine Onyx Black Ink. This is a waterproof ink pad so it is perfect for today’s technique.
Then I took out Worn Lipstick and Seedless Preserves Distress Ink Pads, transferred the pigment from the ink pads onto my craft sheet.
I diluted the colors by adding lots of water onto each color and soaked up my round watercolor brush. I recommend medium round brush for this technique.
You can drop the watercolor pigments onto the card later by tapping the neck of the watercolor brush. If you do it from far away, you will get a bigger splash. If you do it close to the later, you will get smaller sized splattering drops.
I concentrated the splatters on the center part of the layer and added few more splatters around the card front. This helps so the attention goes right to the butterfly image. I stamped the sentiment with Versafine right below the butterfly image.
As a final touch, I added Wink of Stella onto the butterfly so it has a little bit of soft shine. I love the elegant look and the feel of the card.
Hope you enjoyed today’s card! I will be back later with another project to share. Happy Stamping!
