This was inspired by Pam and Viv at Ally Pally (thanks ladies). It's using three colours of Distress inks on glossy paper to get a graduted colour change. I'm not very good with a brayer so something like this is a way for me to achieve a similar look.
I used the waste from a die cut butterfly to create the mask to work with. I'm going to play with other shapes too, but this one really did screem to be used. The foliage is from 'Wild Meadow', an Elusive Images stamp plate that I was given recently. When stamping the foliage I masked off the butterfly for some of it to try and give some kind of dimension to the picture.
I shall be trying out some christmas shapes to see what I can come up with, if it works well I'll post them next week.
