I used this pretty butterfly stamp by Uniko (English Country Garden - Butterflies) and my brand new distress oxide inks to stamp a rainbow of butterflies. Next, I sprayed my stamped images with water to test the properties of these new inks. The pigment component in the oxide inks allow you to stamp a very crisp image, while the distress component reacts with water and wicks out. Such a cool effect!
After drying my panel with a heat tool, I used my Misti to double stamp the sentiment from the same set in Archival jet black ink, trimmed down my panel and foam mounted it onto my card base (SSS). A few sequins finished off my card.
