Something a little bit different


The postman brought me something I haven't used before - 6 little pots of Infusions Coloured Stains by Paperartsy.  The best way to describe these is little pots of pure colour magic!  The background of this card is my first attempt using the stain powders with a matte gel medium.   It started off as just a play but then I thought "why waste it".  The butterfly is punched from my second attempt on a piece of scrap paper (nothing gets wasted!)

The wave die cut is by Stampin' Up!  The sentiment is Tim Holtz stamped with Dapper Denim - one of the new Stampin' Up! In Colors for 2016-2018.

Look how vibrant the colours are!!

I'm going to enter this card in the following challenges:
Crazy 4 Challenges (Just add a butterfly)

The butterfly is very pretty, your technique there is beautiful too. Thanks for joining us at Inspiration Destination. I hope to see you again on the next challenge! Good luck!!! Patricia

This is just so beautifully designed and I love how the butterfly pops against the greens.
