Distress Butterflies

I had a bit of an inky afternoon yesterday and played with my distress inks and a few ideas I had. A couple of weeks ago I spent a great morning at Inspirations in Preston where the wonderful Hels Sheridan was demonstrating her fantastic distress techniques - check out her amazing blog here. Hels is also running a couple of classes at Dawn Bibby Studio in Oswaldtwistle on Sat and Sunday 24 & 25th March and I'm going to the Sunday Class and I'm so excited - I can't wait.

I really enjoyed making this card. I used TH Distress inks in Barn Door, Wild Honey, Marigold and Black Soot. I cut several Movers & Shakers butterfly die and TH Butterfly Stamps. The expression rubber stamp is one I have had so long I can't remember where it came from!

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-

The Stamp Man - Vintage
Papercrafting Journey - Anything goes
Totally Papercraft 107 - My Favourite Things
