Rolling along with a swirl
Ok, so this card is so easy. First the butterfly, have you ever heard of rolling? Its where I inked the butterfly in orange first, and then dipped the edges ( rolled the stamp) into red. It was so easy, and if you go light to darker it really doesnt do anything to dye ink pads. I dont mind a little dirty stampin! The trail I made by stamping the swirl onto scrap paper first, and then stamping onto my project. That is called stamping off, or second generation stamping.
I used my very fave stitch stamp, and after putting my saying on the card used the stitch to stretch the saying all the way over the edges of the card. Finally I used my stardust gelly pen to put some glittery silvery touches on my butterfly and trail. It makes a nice subtle difference in the light:)
Have a great day all...and stamp a little fun yourself!
