Find Joy In The Ordinary

This week I am showcasing the BUTTERFLIES stamp set from Katzelkraft.
The background has been created with Picked Raspberry and Weathered Wood Distress Inks, applying them to a non-stick craft sheet and spritzing with water and then mopping up the ink with the tag. I also added some splatters to the background using the Speckles Layering Stencil to add a further layer of interest.
A touch of background stamping has been adding using Watering Can Archival Ink along with small leaves around the outside edges. I inked the Echinacea flower with Magenta Hue and Watering Can Archival Ink and stamped twice to the bottom of the tag.
I die cut a circle from white card, coloured with Weathered Wood Distress Ink and then stamped the image once again using Archival Inks. I also added birds and 'discover' using Botanical Remnant Rubs to add further interest.
Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a comment. Tracy x x
