Three Butterflies

Hi everyone, hope you have had an enjoyable day. I decided to stay at home today and do a few jobs. My youngest daughter called in to borrow some money and didn't stay because she was not well and was on her way to the doctors. (She did get the job she was after in aged care, but doesn't start until the 26th of this month.) My middle son popped in after work for a while and then my eldest daughter rang and organised for me to have her dogs overnight and also organised some food for us to share for our evening meal. My eldest son rang and said he was coming over to check whether his old bicycle was still in the shed and while we were on the phone, my youngest son rang as well. LOL, I either don't see or hear from anyone or I get inundated with the five of them! I must say it is unusual to see so many of them on one day unless we are having a get together for some reason or other.
Well better get on and share my card, I am hoping it scanned okay. I made it for the Less Is More Challenge - week 28. It is to be a one layer card and the challenge is to use ink, possibly in a way you haven't used before.
The card I've made is a White Gloss cardstock from SU and I used Tim Holtz distress inks - Vintage Photo, Tumbled Glass,Shabby Shutters and Fired Brick. I sponged the inks on and then polished over them with a tissue, this blended the inks together and then I used the Tumbled Glass ink directly from the stamp pad to make the 3 squares and then I stamped the 3 butterflies with black Stazon and also the sentiment. Both the stamps were from SU.
Thanks for stopping by today,
Take Care,

    Great inking... the white space has disappeared but I guess the pink space will count instead!!!

  5. Hi Sandy ..Interesting I think . Like the way you turned the inked squares around slightly as you stamped and followed that through with the butterflys .
