Just trying something a bit different


No challenge for this card but wanted to try this simple colourwashing technique from Craft Stamper Magazine.  Quite different for me and have totally cased the style demonstrated in the magazine this month.  However, it was very easy and, I think, produces a great effect.  The  image stamp is from Cherry Pie Stamps as is the sentiment, can't remember where the corner stamps are from.  I've used Distress Inks for my colour washing and the butterfly is two images punched out with a MS punch to give a shadowed effect.  Sent this to my special cyber sis, Faerielore, for her birthday at the weekend - I heard she had a fab time!!  Happy Birthday Sis!!
