For little bit of shared inspiration, I decided to do an inked background with some added butterflies and I will show you how I did this. Here is my finished card.
For my background, I got some plain white card stock and three CTMH inks, Cranberry, Pear and Sunny Yellow.
I used my blending tool and added the inks, first red, then green and finally yellow. Think it looks a little bit like Saurons Eye from Lords of the Rings :-)
Anyways, back on track :-) I then took a small Recollections Butterfly stamp and stamped over the blended ink, with the CTMH Cranberry. I also double stamped a few, to get that faded look. And there you have my background.
Then layered it up and added my image.
The striped paper and the image are from the new Bonbon Belles CD at Polka Doodles. The sentiment stamp is from a Fairy Flutterfly Stamp set - Gracie.
I coloured this lovely image, Heather, with my Spectrum Noir markers. She was cut out using my Silhouette Cameo. The colours I used for my image are below.
Wings FS3, CR1, CR5, CR8, DR5
Skin FS2, TN2
Clothes CR4, CR5, CR6
Hair TN3, TN2, GB1
For the inside I used the same striped paper and layer card stock, and then added the butterfly stamp to two of the corners.
I hope you will pop along and enter this weeks challenge, get those creative heads on :-)
