Fusion Card Challenge #4

First time I’ve ever played with this challenge ! Check it out here !

I chose to use both the sketch and the colours from the picture to create this:

Margaret C

*Butterflies: Papermania

* Sentiment and dies: Papertrey Ink

Gosh, this card is so beyond my colour comfort zone ! I picked out the distress inks I had in the colours of the picture and smooshed them on my craft mat before spritzing with water and dragging my cardstock through it. I LOVE this technique;it looks so arty for something so simple !! After mounting my stamped panel, I thought it looked too stark on the plain white background so I did a second generation stamping using the same stamp and the distress inks – it just lifted the white from the white.

Anyhow, I like ! maybe I should come out of the comfort zone more often…
