Afternoon, hope you’re all well today!
I’ve been playing my acrylic inks again, I think I need to get some more colours 🙂
These are the same inks I used for the Dream Art Journal page, you can see my blog post here, but as you can see the colours are much brighter for the Butterfly card above. I used a different mix of acrylic ink to water for this project, the ability to mix up the sprays as I want is going to be so useful 🙂
I started my spraying the background with the acrylic inks, whilst the ink was drying I created several masks for the butterfly stamp. I then started stamping the butterfly in Black Archival Ink, from an Indigo Blu stamp set, masking the stamped butterflies as I went. I stamped the sentiment using Black Archival Ink, highlighting some areas of the text with a white pen. I intensified the colour of some of he butterflies, painting them with the neat acrylic inks. I emphasized the sentiment by dotting around it with white markers, various nib widths, and adding some glossy accents sprinkled with clear glitter (although the sparkle isn’t showing up much in the photo!). I also added a border to the project using a white pen, before adding the decoupage butterflies for some added dimension. The decoupage butterflies were stamped onto a piece of card that I’d already covered with the acrylic ink sprays. Finally matting onto black cardstock.
Thanks for stopping by 🙂
