Outlines challenge #2
It's June! can you belive it .... the year is half over. Over on Outlines Rubber Stamp blog they just started to do challenges..this card is for challenge #2, theme is to do a black and white card with a splash of color. Oh yes, you must use Outlines Rubber stamps which is easy for my because I have a few draws full of thier stamps. I chose to do a spring card and what shows off spring but butterflies. I did a fun coloring technique I just learned from Jennifer McGuire last month where you use the edge of 'The Ranger Ink ink blending tool with Distress Broken China ink. Start from the center of the butterfly image and pull the blending tool full of ink to spread the color but do not go to the end of image. This is a fun and quick way to add color to an image. Can you believe how great the broken china ink matched cardstock I had in my stash. Also pulled out a roll of craft black wire to make antenas on butterflies.
