All Of A Flutter By Fliss Goodwin


Hello there, I have a rather grungy style card to share today as I’ve been playing with my Distress Stains again and at the moment have exceedingly blue fingers! I decided that we all need a bit of brightening up as the current very chilly weather is apparently set in until the end of April – eek!

Here’s What You Need 

Distress Inks – Wild Honey, Stormy Sky, Crushed Olive 
Thick Smooth Cartridge Paper
White 6x6 Card Blank

Here’s How To 

·       Cut a 15cm square of cartridge paper and spray with water. Apply dabs of the green and light blue Distress Stains to the craft sheet and swipe the damp card through to pick up the colour. Spray with a little more water to spread the colour and dry with a heat gun. Repeat until you are happy with the colour. 

·       Stamp the arty design on the stained paper with the Wild Honey Distress ink, twisting as you go round the edges to form a frame, re-inking before stamping each time. Trim to fit the card blank and rub Crushed Olive Distress ink round the edges to darken them. Stick to the card. 

·       Cut a further piece of cartridge paper, approximately 7x15cm. Spray with water as before and colour with the blue and lilac Distress Stains applied to the craft sheet. When happy with the colour, stamp the botanical design on with the black ink.  

·       Stamp the cherished text from the Prima set on the panel with the black ink. Trim to fit across the card then ink the edges with Stormy Sky Distress ink and add to the card.

·       Stamp the largest butterfly on a scrap of cartridge paper with black ink and colour with the orange Aquamarker. Cut the image out and add to the card on the left side.

Happy Easter everyone and try not to eat too much chocolate!

  2. Love the juxtaposition of organic (butterfly, flowers) with the grid, Fliss. And who says blue and green should never be seen?
