Masculine Butterfly Thank You Trio :D

A trio of identical grungy thank you cards in three different colours :D I think this style of a splashed distressed background really lends itself well to masculine cards, and the Creative Expressions stamps I've used are just perfect for this!! :D I used my MISTI to make these cards, as I thought when it's such a simple design I might as well make three in different colours :D Firstly I built up the background using a mixture of different creative expressions stamps, using three tones of a colour family to stamp them (I should however have cleaned the black archival ink off of the border stamp as it made a bit of a muddy colour, but hey, they look alright :D) After creating the background, I used an anti-static tool, then stamped my focal elements using black pigment ink, I sprinkled on my clear embossing powder and heat set, then for the final touch, I watered down some Pixie Powders in coordinating colours and splashed them over each card using a small round paint brush :D Hope you liked today's trio of cards :D My videos may become more sparse over the next couple of weeks, as I've got lots of Magazine Commissions to be getting on with, and they're what pay the bills lol, but I have the next three Mag Freebie videos planned, and I'll hopefully be back to my almost daily upload routine by the beginning of May :D
