I've "inked" the stamp with water then put the corners of my card on the stamp rather than use it as a whole image. I really like how the pattern comes through and you can just about see the bird towards the middle
I've added a sentiment from another Stampin Up set Butterfly Prints and stamped it in Majestic Blue Versafine. The butterfly is cut from scrap pattered paper with a Marianne die and I've edged it with distress inks to tone down the white.When I cut the butterfly I used some wax paper to help the diecut release and it's such a shame to waste it so I've put it on the card under the main butterfly to give another layer.
I've done another in pinks pretty much the same but the sentiment didn't show up will directly on the card so I've re-stamped on a scrap of card and edged it with distress inks to blend in. I quite like this water stamping technique and I'm sure I'll use it again
I'm also entering this into the challenge at Heck of a Challenge. The theme this month is Water so these cards fit in well
