Butterfly Card With Distress Inks

card 1
Hi everyone, this will be my last project with a butterfly focal point for a while.  I hope not to bore you.  Don't know what has gotten into me.  But I just had to share this card today before I switch directions.  I made all the pieces for this card, but the layout was terrible, so I let it sit for a day or so and came back and cut and swapped and turned it into this.
card 2
Lots of Distress Inks.  The Tim Holtz die was painted with Distress Crackle paint, then inked purple to match this project.  The splatters are a result of mixing my DI on my dirty craft paint and some other brand of watercolor mixing in - how cool - if only I could recreate the effect.  The color seemed to separate...
card 3
Another project based on this verse that I have been meditating on.  "I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world."  John 16:33 NIV.  Thanks so much for your visit.  I appreciate every single blogging buddy I have made and ever last comment.  <3
