PPA 138- Beautiful Butterflies

Hi All! Hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July! I enjoyed my day off with my kids :) Too bad I had to go back to work the next day (Thursday). Was weird to have a day off mid week!

With today's card I'm joining Pals Paper Art's Color Challenge (PPA) over at I love the color combo and this is what I came up with. I'm very happy with the result! Hope I'm not the only one haha!
Using the stamp set Beautiful Butterflies from Stampin'Up! I created my own designer paper using the three colors from the PPA's color challenge. The sentiment is from the Much Appreciated stamp set also from SU! I've had that set for a while and I love it.

Hope you like it and head over to PPA to check other wonderful cards!

Distress Ink and Copics

Hi All,
Today I have a card using Copic markers and Distress Inks for the first time! I have lots of practice to do :) Copics are wonderful. I could not believe how great they blend. And there's so much you can do with Distress Inks!
So for today's card I used a Stampin' Up flower stamp to do the coloring with Copics. Then I cut around it with a circle cutter. Behind the flower I cut a 3.5 x 4.5 in of white card stock and then used distress inks... this is another awesome thing! What I did was rubbed some ink on a craft sheet , sprayed some water and laid the piece of card stock right on top. Let air dry or use a heat gun to speed the drying process. I saw this technique at Kristina has amazing work!
Hope you like it! I'm planning on giving away some candy VERY soon so please visit my blog again soon!!
