Artful Flutters for STAMPlorations blog hop

Welcome to day 2 of the STAMPlorations Blog Hop. 
The card I'm showing today uses the same stencil as yesterday, Shower of Flutters but a different technique and colourway to produce a very different effect.


This time I inked the stencil with some DIs and spritzed some water over it, then used the stencil as a stamp. I love the way the water has a haphazard way of blending the ink. To finish the panel I splashed some of the left over watery ink onto the white portion.
I liked the finished panel but wanted to do something a little different so bit the bullet and die cut the tag from the panel and mounted it on a larger tag edged with a colour wash of DI. The thanks was stamped and embossed in silver, a few sequins were added and a butterfly that was left over from another project. Ribbon and twine from the stash. This just shows how versatile this stencil is as the card from yesterday's hop and this are so different but use the same stencil!
