Emily DT - Better By Change

Hi everyone, this weeks card features one of my favourite ways to create a background - spray inks.

I love the effect you get using spray inks and the result is different each time.

Here is the card I have made...

I started by colouring two pieces of card, one using oranges and one using greens. I just randomly sprayed the ink on and left it to dry.

Once it was dry I stamped the Better By Change and Butterfly stamps onto the green piece. I then cut out the butterfly and chopped up the sentiment and mounted it onto black. I cut them out with scissors rather than my paper trimmer as I wanted them to be a bit random and not uniformly straight.

I stamped the butterfly onto the orange and glued the green one on top. This way you don't have to cut out the fiddly bits!!

I stuck the words on using foam pads and mounted the whole thing onto black.

I really love this card and I love the contrast of green on orange. I also really like the texture created by the spray inks.

I hope you like the card as much as I do!

Emily xx
