Hello Friend

 HappySunday to You.  Today is a quick post featuring a beautiful butterfly and an ink smooshed background.


This is my take on a Clean and Simple design.  I love designer paper and pattern but every now and then I like to experiment with a simplier design.  This card features a butterfly and sentiment from the Gina K. Designs "Beautiful Butterflies" stamp set designed by Melanie Muenchinger.

To create the background, I added color to a stamping block using Arteza Real Brush Markers, spritzed with water and "stamped" on 110 lb. card.  To complete the card, I added ink splatters and card candy dots.  It developed into a lovely Friendship card.

Until Next time, Happy Crafting!
Donna
