Butterfly Sparkle

Hey Everybody! We just made it through a crazy heat wave here so I haven't had a lot of free time to craft this last week. The temps got above 100 so we left our house and stayed with some friends that had AC (thanks Rob & Jenny!).

So today I'm sharing a card I made for Jennifer's Thinking Inking class. I used distress ink for the background design and the sentiment. I needed a lighter shade for the side panels so I inked off once and then got the look I was going for.


This particular class was focused around Stickles. Love the glimmer they add to a project!

I'm totally inspired by Lisa Spangler and this week's Hero Arts challenge theme so I'll be back to share more soon!


Materials:
[Butterflies & Sunshine Card]
Stamps: Hero Arts Flourish Design Block, Raindrops Background, Anytime Messages
Paper: PTI, Bazzill Swiss Dots Embossed
Ink: Ranger Distress Ink
Other: Diamond Stickles, PTI Button, Corner Rounder
