AAA Cards, ATSM, Happy Little Stampers Watercolour, Just Add Ink, Watercooler Wednesday


Hi everyone, I do hope you're having a good weekend and enjoying some sunshine.

Just a very quick post to share a card I've made using the acrylic block stamping technique with distress markers for the background, the butterflies were inked with a distress marker and misted with water before stamping and sentiment heat embossed in white.

Linking up to five challenges:
AAA Cards - Shiny Spring
Addicted to Stamps and More - Photo Inspiration
Just Add Ink - 'Just Add Critters'
Watercooler Wednesday - Anything Goes
