About Me

Welcome to my blog

I started this blog in April 2012 so I could join Challenges. I am now on some design teams. I hope you like my cards. I started stamping in 1995 but my cards are still mostly cute.
Thank you to those who have joined as followers and to those who comment.

Butterfly Challenge 46 - Butterflies + I is for inks

Butterfly challenge 46 is butterflies + I is for inks

Even thought I have lots of rubber stamps I have been using mostly digital stamps as they are easier on my sore hands.
I have tried doing stamping again using ink pad and stamp, I am not real happy with it but here it is

I have sponged gloss card with brilliance and distress ink pads.  Stamped butterfly and sentiment from an Our Daily Bread designs stamp set with Dusty Concord Distress ink pad.  Punched butterfly from white card and pressed it into the same ink pad and attached.  Layered all onto purple card.
I think it would have been better to use normal card instead the gloss card.

I would also like to enter this card into the following:
