UNITY STAMPS FWF FRIDAY JUNE 26 2015

 

 
 
This is a card that I made with bisters ink crystals and lots of water. I used a few colours of crystals and put them on a sheet of wrinkled plastic wrap. I then sprayed water from a mister on the ink and then laid my watercolour paper on top of the colour. I then wrapped up the paper to let it dry. After 10 minutes,  I unwrapped the paper and this colourful background was created. The butterflies were punched from scrap water colour paper that I used to mop up ink from my craft sheet. There were many colours on this scrap and made perfect punch outs.
 
I used a sentiment stamp from Wish with Your Heart from UNITY STAMPS.
 
Friday is Friends with Flair on the Unity blog. Stampers share their projects with each other. I really look forward to all the inspiring ideas. Check out the blog here. You won't be disappointed.
