Butterfly Cards

The butterflies on these are from a collection of Tim Holtz stickers that I purchased a few weeks ago.  I made a color copy of them and then inked them with TH Broken China Distress Ink using a sponge dauber and cut them out by hand.  Doing the copy onto cardstock took away the shiny surface that was on the stickers; that's a look that I didn't want on these cards.

The cardstock I used is also Tim Holtz, it was distressed with Vintage Photo ink.  The stamped butterflies are done with the same ink.

Wish you could see these in person, I think they're some of the prettiest cards I've made in some time!

I love the papers in the Tim Holtz stacks.  It's hard for me to use it though--because once I do, it's gone!  But I'd seen some cards at And Bear Makes Three in Norman, OK that inspired me to "sacrifice" some of it!

Linda, these are beautiful!!! I love them and I may scraplift. I really like your idea of making copies of the butterflies to take that shine away. How smart! TFS
