distress ink rainbow, stencils and wood veneers!


Samantha here, and today I have a card that features...well..pretty much EVERYTHING i'm currently crushing on!!

Here's just a sample:

Oh yeah! Now that I have wet your appetite, let's get down to it! Here is my card:

Oh! It makes me so happy!

I made the background panel with 6 different distress inks! First, I smooshed them onto my acrylic block, and then I used a paintbrush and water to paint them onto my Tim Holtz watercolor paper! Once the rainbow was complete, I took this super awesome stencil and liberally sprayed LOTS of Mr Huey's Calico White spray over it all!

I popped up the watercolor piece and added the sentiment from Paper Smooches Spectrum stamp set (one of my favorites ever!) which I stamped onto handmade banners!

The wood veeneers are from the Cloud 9 Bloom wood veneer pack - LOVE THOSE LITTLE HEARTS! lol! what a sweet addition to the clouds! Lastly, I completed the sentiment with some Studio Calico Tiny Alphas (I'm nutso for tiny type right now!) lol!

So what are you currently loving on your cards or projects right now?
Clearly I am loving all things: watercolor, vellum, stencils, wood veneers and alpha stickers! No lie! ha ha! You can find any of your crafty crushes all at the Butterfly Reflections Ink store!

Thanks for stopping by!
