Butterfly Splodge OLC Card


Wowiee another post in the same day!
Having a lovely crafty day today even if I'm fighting off a cold. Here's my entry in the Less is More OLC challenge where the theme is Wings...

Starting off with a diddy 4x4 card I stamped the free butterfly stamp from Creative Stamper in Versamark and then heat embossed with black embossing powder. Then, using a mixture of Broken Glass, Milled Lavender and Picket Fence Distress Stains, I created a messy, splodgey background over and around the butterfly, wiping off the excess ink from the embossed areas. Next I unscrewed the top off a bottle of  Lilac Night mica spray from Carole's Craft and flicked the tube end across the card to create flecks of colour.
I also added Wisteria and Frost Blue Aquamarker to the butterfly to add definition and bring out the colours a bit more.

I then stamped a sentiment from Stampendous in StazOn and added lilac adhesive pearls to finish off the card.
I was actually a little bit dubious of this card to start with as I'm a bit of a perfectionist and was worried about getting the perfect 'splodge' (whatever that is). But as I kept going with it I actually ended up making something I really like. The more I look at it the more I like it!
