Write on Your Heart


Hi and I am back playing along with a few challenges.  Addicted to CAS- summer challenge; FS at Splitcoast and the Simon Says- Anything Goes Challenge.
I wanted a simple backdrop for my Penny Black butterfly so I told my yellow Distress ink pad (Squeezed Lemonade) and just rubbed it down the front of my cardstock.  I rubbed the ink pad onto my acrylic block then added water to it so I could use it as paint to splatter my card front.  I coloured the butterfly with Copics then cut it out and mounted it with pop dots and added the sentiment.
Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look....I truly appreciate it!

Supplies:  stamps; Penny Black/ Distress inks/ Copic markers/ pop dots
