Wings and Things - Bloggers Challenge

Happy Bloggers Challenge Friday!  Thanks so much to those who played along with last weeks Color Challenge.  This weeks Challenge is "wings and things", I'm looking forward to seeing your creations!


To create my card I used the Watercolor Distress Technique using Ranger Distress Ink Stains.  Normally when I do this technique I used Matte Coated card stock, but because the bolder images don't stamp as nice I Matte card stock, I used White.  I started out by stamping the Grunge Butterfly from Our Daily Bread Designs God's Love collection in Ranger Black Archival on White card Stock, then added the sentiment from ODBD's Simple Things collection.  I also stamped the open butterfly from ODBD's 2 Step Butterfly on scrap piece of White card stock, then added Rangers Fired Brick Red, Mustard Seed and Wild Honey Distress Stains to a non stick craft sheet.  After spritzing the stains, I smooshed the Stamped panels into the ink, lifted up and heat dried.  I used ODBD's Custom Butterfly 2 Die to cut the 2 Step Butterfly then adhered it over the Grunge Butterfly with dimensionals.

If you're looking for a good price on the Distress Stains, I just saw they are currently onsale at Blitsy!
