This butterfly was stamped on a transparency swiped with alcohol inks. I then backed it with white card stock.
This butterfly was stamped on a transparency covered in alcohol ink. After being stamped the stamp ink was quickly wiped away to leave the white butterfly border. I need to practice this technique more, but it is really cool!
This is a charm fragment by Tim Holtz. 48 come in a package, and they are so fun! I really piled on the ink on this one and added some pearl to it. I inked the back, then backed it with white card stock. Then I stamped the bird on the front. This could be cute on a card, or even on a necklace!
Here is another view of the charm. I love the marble look! It is cool that you can get a swiped look like on the first butterfly, coverage like on the second, or a marble look like on this charm. I also love that my fingers get all inky! It makes me feel like an artist :).
