Floral Tattoo

Hello, hello~~ Hope you are having a lovely week so far. I haven't had the chance to play with many challenges other than my dt obligations the past few months and I have decided that I need to play with more challenges and challenge myself a little more. I get to play with some paints the other day and came up with a card for the Embellish Paint or Mist Color Trends Challenge.


I inked the flourish (or butterfly trail in this case) from the Floral Tattoo set with Ranger Acrylic Paint Dabber in Stream and stamped it on a piece of watercolor paper.


The butterfly is cut from Smoky Shadow cardstock with the Mini Butterflies die set then I stamped the doily/lace pattern from the Floral Tattoo set with Ranger Acrylic Pearl Paint Dabber. I really like the shine the Pearl paint gives.


The text background and sentiment are from Papertrey Ink and they are stamped with pumice stone distress ink with spritz of water.

That's all for now. You can find all the details for this challenge here. Hope you have a beautiful day! =)





Thanks for stopping by!
