The Hop to Stop 2016 ~ Raising Awareness on Domestic Violence

Hello Blogging Friends,


Seedless Preserves distress ink
Various paper from my stash
Sea Salt

For this A2 card I started with white card stock for the base of the card, then I added a piece of lavender patterned paper to the base.  I took a piece of Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor paper and spritzed it with water.  I took my craft mat and rubbed some Seedless Preserves distress ink on it and spritzed it with water and then swirled my paper thru the ink and water and then I sprinkled some chunky sea salt on top and let it dry.  When it was all dry I wiped the salt off and then ran the paper thru my Vagabond with the Memory Box Chloe Butterfly die, then I cut out some black paper with the same die.  I took the frame of the butterfly from the black die cut and placed that on my card and then I took the pieces of watercolored paper and inlaid them inside the butterfly frame.  Lastly I took the CAS-ual Friday Hope Fri-Die die and cut out some more of the Seedless Preserves distress inked paper and then added that underneath the butterfly!  I have to say that I absolutely LOVE the way the paper turned out with the Seedless Preserves distress ink, water and salt!  You have to give it a try!  You will be amazed at the results!
