I'm really liking this masking / inking technique I saw on a Hero Arts video. I masked off a rectangular shape on the front of my card and used Tim Holtz Distress Inks (broken china and crushed olive) and the ink applicator to 'swirl' the sky and grass onto the card. I then used the same crushed olive ink and a clear stamp from Technique Tuesday to stamp flowers at the bottom of the card while still masked. The butterfly 2-step stamp is from Michaels - I stamped the main butterfly body with TH Worn Lipstick and then stamped the body outline with Colorbox Chalk Chestnut Roan. I will be using this technique a lot more as I love the effect it gives a plain card.
