I was playing around with the SSS challenge colors on a piece of watercolor paper and first I splashed on some Distress Inks using the wet-on-wet technique, before drying with my heat tool. Then I got out some layering stencils and inked through the Scribble stencil with Chipped Sapphire ink, the Numbered stencil with Hickory Smoke ink and the Measured stencil with Peacock Feathers ink. Lastly, I spritzed the whole panel with Perfect Pearls shimmer spray before die-cutting with a tag die. It looks really pretty and almost like it's tie-dyed in real life.
The sentiment was stamped with Archival Black ink using Sending and Wishing set by SSS. I then adhered a white die-cut butterfly to the tag. This butterfly was one of a selection kindly sent to me by Barb Ghig and I've been hoarding them for several weeks but decided to actually use one on this card :)
The card base is PTI's Soft Stone and I've debossed the front with the Weathered embossing folder. A little twine bow and some sequins finish the card.
Thanks for visiting.
