Just Add Ink #272 - Just Add Butterflies
I'm very happy to say my big boy (aka Gorgeous Kid) arrived safely home from Borneo last week. He was dirty and smelly, extremely tired and pretty happy to see his old mum. I didn't let him out of my sight all weekend! More on that another day. Today I'm stopping in super quickly because I have next to no time at the moment :(
We have a new challenge over at Just Add Ink today, and this week Di has asked us to add butterflies. I think this one is going to be very popular. Who doesn't love butterflies?
I've used the lovely new Thick Whisper White c/s - loving it! So sturdy. I used the Butterflies Thinlits to cut a piece out of my mat layer, then added an ombre watercolour wash (on w/c paper) in pink tones - darkest at top going lighter all the way down - under the mat. You can't really see it well in the photo. I then added my die cut butterfly, along with a second butterfly cut out of vellum and popped up on dimensionals to give 'flight'. It's kinda pretty irl. The sentiment is heat embossed using the now retired Smoky Slate ep.
It's settlement day on our new house! Woohoo!!! And Auction day on the current house tomorrow! Eeek. A very busy time ahead for us. Hope to be back again soon, however, our internet service provider may have other ideas. Hope it's all up and working in no time. Can. Not. Live. Without. Internet. Sad as that is!
If you find some time to get inky this weekend, please do join the challenge fun. Pop over to JAI and check out all the gorgeous butterfly inspiration.
