For my card today, I wanted to share how the Just Breath stamp set can be used in ways other than Breast Cancer Awareness...
I had a ton of fun on this card! I created the background with a variety of Distress Stains and Inks. I started out by spraying a butterfly stencil by Heidi Swapp in Mermaid Lagoon Distress Spray, then I layed it down on a piece of Canson watercolor paper. When I lifted the stencil up, I had this amazing watery butterfly background. I dried it with my heat tool and then made some puddles of Rusty Hinge ink and then dabbled the watercolor paper in it to create the splats and sprays you see.
I heat embossed the sentiment on black cardstock in white and then cut the sentiement apart so I could layer it like this. The hearts and corners are also from the Just Breath stamp set, I just cut those out by hand. To finish off the card, I added some floss and some Harvest Gold Sequins! I also added some splatters of Heidi Swapp Gold spray ink, it looks so gorgeous IRL!
