Blended Butterfly

Uniko Studio stamps

Using the photo from Stylin' Stampin' Inkspiration.
Less Is More want 'exotic'.
AAA want to see blending.
The CAS Mix Up Challenge for August is stamping, sprays & one other.  

I started out with my mini Distress Ink cubes and good intentions ..
I frequently see wonderfully blended Distress ink backgrounds around blogland and try and jump on the bandwagon.
Then inevitably give up and turn to my fave Brushos and Mica Powders.
All thoroughly blended together!!
Another ridiculously rubbish day for the weather.
But you know what that means - don't you?!

.... a house strewn with wet washing inside ...
And a spell of crafting!


  1. Yeah - me too on the washing front!

    Another beautiful butterfly card from you Lindsey. Top marks.

    Hugs, Sarn xxx

  2. LOVE this combination of colours paired with your gorgeous gold embossed butterfly. Beautiful card Lindsey. Isn't it nice of mother nature to provide those dreary days so we can focus on playing with ink?? Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up!

  3. An absolutely gorgeous blend of colours here Lindsey. They work beautifully together and teamed with the gold embossed butterfly is so exotic too. Love it!
