Kind Butterflies

Sharing a thank you card with you today using the NEW Butterflies clear stamp set from Whimsy Stamps.

For the green splattered background I used a spray bottle and mixed in a little green acrylic paint with  quite a bit of water, shook it real well and spritzed it onto a heavy weight white card stock. Tip: don't over saturate the card stock. You could also use watercolor paper instead of regular card stock then you wouldn't have to worry about over saturation.

For the Butterflies I started by sponging a few different colors of distress ink randomly onto white card stock, then stamped both butterflies with black ink and fussy them out. 

 For the larger butterfly I was able to cut out the antennae but on the smaller one they were too delicate so I just cut them off entirely and drew them on with a black marker after attaching it to the card.

I used the You're Too Kind stamp set for the sentiment, then added the super cool Connected Oval die around it and matted onto a black card base.

For the final touches I used a small strip of the black and white striped paper from the gorgeous NEW Fabulous Florals 6x6 paper pack (one of my new favs). And lastly added a little glitter to the Butterflies wings.
