A New Technique

The challenge this week over at Less is More is to USE INK. I have chosen to try a new technique. 

The are a huge number of amazing cards submitted this week and am going to have my work cut out looking at them all.  I have already seen some techniques that I would like to try.

The inspiration for the card came from one that I saw made by Joanne Wardle in June's Craft Stamper. She was demonstrating the technique of masking and had used a Paper Artsy stamp that looked like ink splodges.  I love masking and use it often in my card making but I liked the splodgy effect so decided to improvise.

My version
I placed a Post it Note at the bottom of a cream card base before inking so that it would produce a clean line. The stamped butterflies were masked before inking a piece of Cut and Dry foam an applying it to the card to give a gradient effect. I then dropped clean water on to the inked surface.  I finished by embossing a line below the image and adding the sentiment.
