Fly Free

Hello everyone, it's time already for a new theme at Allsorts challenge and Liz is hosting this week. She picked the optional theme of "Things that Fly" or you can go with Anything Goes. All entries following our simple rules will be entered into the prize drawing and considered for the top 5 so hope you'll come join us this week with either option. We have prizes from  AALL and Create and Aldridge Crafts, they are for challenges 769 and 770. This challenge ends in March so look out for the winners post on the last Friday of March. Oh, and if you haven't already, be sure to check out yesterday's winners post where the February winners were announced!

This theme was the perfect opportunity for me to ink up this beautiful butterfly stamp from Aall and Create called Spread Your Wings, another set I purchased when they had their super sale. 

I started out by masking the edges of the image panel using washi tape and brushed some clean water onto the Bristol Vellum paper. Then I added diluted Distress ink with a brush. I used Broken China and Cracked Pistachio ink. The beautiful image was stamped onto the paper using Broken China ink then onto scrap paper using Versafine Onyx ink. Distress inks were then used to color both butterflies and then fussy cut along with the circle. "Fly Free" is from the same set. I layered the image panel on inked cardstock (using Cracked Pistachio ink) then a white card base.
