Amidst The Drips

*This is the FINAL butterflies & flowers promotion post. Remember to leave a comment to be entered in the giveaway.*
Hello crafters, Kirsten here to show you a splattery, inky, stencilled card................
I used a negative of the large butterfly die cut to apply Picked Raspberry distress ink onto a piece of watercolour card..........
Next, I mixed distress inks with water on my blending mat & used a paintbrush to make splodges & drips on the watercolour card...............
This was followed by applying Jet Black Stazon ink through some stencils;
(6x6" stencils)
I die cut the large butterfly using black card & glued it over the pink one.............
I made a flower by die cutting some circles out of pink vellum, then folded them over & cut into them to make petals & secured all the circles with a brad. The greeting is from the Woodware Clear Magic Mini Flowers stamp set & everything was matted & layered onto black & pink cards, then onto a 7x7 card blank. I finished by adding some dots with a white pen to the splodges &
splatters of Sunshine Satin Silkies...............
NB The butterfly dies sold out at the August class, but they can be ordered from Lisa. Phone her on 01622 675078, or send her an email;

Thanks for looking. Don't forget the current blog challenge, it's all about flowers & butterflies too. I will return some time tomorrow with the winner of the butterflies & flowers giveaway.


  1. A gorgeous card and love the background you have created.

  2. Stunning card! I love how you've done the butterfly. xx

  3. Some very clever techniques here...I like the idea of the die over the sponged base of he butterfly.

  4. Great techniques, love the flower, it's been lovely to see all the ideas over the weeks, thanks.x

  5. Who needs fancy patterned paper when you can have splodges and splashes? Would be a great card for a teen.

  6. I love the background, looks textured, and with vibrant colours. Thank you, Jan

  7. Love all that background you created with the lovely bright summer colours - shows me that you don't need to go brown to create something distressed and beautiful! Love the masks you have used and you've only used in part - I need to remember to do that too! Thank you for all the inspiration this month - it has been wonderful to see how you use these tools Karen x

  8. Great project Kirtsen. Superb colours.

  9. Pretty meets grungy very cool! You have given me some ideas!!
