What a great challenge over at Less Is More this week, Butterflies now who doesn't love these, so versitile will go with most ideas, anyway I'm waffling here's my attempt

I'm really loving these challenges, it's making me think outside the box and taking me away from my comfort zone,  keep it up ladies

To create this I've been playing with my alchol inks, I used 4 different colours mixed for the background, the main image is a paper artsy stamp inked with versafine black and embossed with clear powder.

The butterflies were then stamped ontop of another piece of alchol inked card clear embossed and cut out.

I'm really pleased with the overall effect.

Here's a closer look at the main image


  1. I love the look of alcohol inks, but never think to use them! Beautiful card!

  2. Alcohol inks are one of my favourite things to play with. Usually use them when altering items and not too much in card making.
    Paper Artsy are one of my all time favourite stamps to collect so you are on a winner with me. A very cool card:-)

  3. Stunning effect Janet
    Lovely colour it!
    Thank you for your loyalty
