One more Butterfly basics card

The Butterflies Thinlits from the new Stampin' Up 2015 Occasions catalogue can also be used as a mask to make a background for a card.

I cut 3 butterflies out of scrap card and used 2-way on the back, leaving it to dry before using so that it would be re-positionable. After laying the butterflies on the whisper white card, I sponged crumb cake ink over the background, over and around the butterflies.

Other variations on this technique include using diluted ink in a spritzer, flick ink from a toothbrush, or dab the inkpad directly onto the card. You can alter patterned paper using this technique as well, newspaper print DSP is perfect for this.
