Inky Butterflies


I made this for the NZCardmakers cardswap.  The topic was a technique with diecuts, inspired by:
The diecuts are single, double & triple  stacked for depth, stuck on then the colouring added, spritzed, more colour, spritzed, more colour and so on.  The butterflies were actually different colours of snippets of card before the colouring was added and it didn't matter if the snippet was too small for the die because I was cutting bits off the edge anyway.

I had a lot of inky fun with this.
