As paper is the main theme I decided to use Speciality Stamping Paper as the base for my card. I also wanted to have a dabble with the Wendy Vecchi technique of rubbing alcohol and re-inkers. For the background I used Hydrangea, Orange Blossom and Cornflower Blue re-inkers and sprinkled rubbing alcohol over the ink and let it run ! I then started to stencil using Lin Brown's new stencils and some Fresco Finish paints.
I had a piece of the backround left over so I stamped one of the flowers and the stem from the new Dylusions Fancy Florals set. I then painted them with Fresco Finish paints. I've used a layer of Tissue Wrap beneath the main image.
The butterfly is made from Grunge Paper that's been covered with some paper from an old book. I rubbed some Distress Ink around the edge and added a rusty safety pin to the centre. I've used brads to attach the ribbon on either side of the flower. To finish some buttons from my stash.
There's still plenty of time to join in with this challenge and for more inpsiration hop over to the main blog.
