Alexandra S.M. *Day 2*

Here's our next stunning card by Alexandra:
I always love a butterfly card and this is no exception!  The pink/orange combo is especially striking.  And isn't the splattered background fun?
Here's my take:

The butterflies, Penny Black 3649C and 3652F Flutterby, were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto Tiara White cardstock and then colored with Copic Markers.  Once cut, the edges were inked with Black Soot Distress Ink.  The purple background was created by inking Tiara White cardstock with Worn Lipstick and Dusty Concord Distress Ink.  Penny Black 40-048 Paisley Outline was stamped with Aged Mahogany Distress Ink.  Text patterned paper was inked with Brushed Corduroy and Walnut Stain Distress Ink. Finally, the notecard was spritzed with Sunflower Glimmer mist and then flicked using a paint brush with Aged Mahogany and Dusty Concord Distress Ink (create Distress Ink paint by pressing ink pads onto acrylic block and then spritzing with water).  Notecard distressed with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.  Sentiment by Penny Black, 30-014 Salutations.

And over on the Mementos Blog we've got more masking for you today.  Check it out HERE.
See you tomorrow with another FAB creation by Alexandra!  Hhmmm... maybe it will be a scrapbook page.... :)
