Spring Butterfly

Splatters is the challenge for Just Us Girls this week. 
That should be easy, but I confess, I used a stencil.  Sometimes splatters just don't splatter where you want them. I like the control.

I just knew that I wanted to used shades of purple, and a butterfly.  Here is the card that I made.

Just another view. 

Here is the recipe:
PTI Soft Stone card stock, Sentiment, Quilt Spring
Ink, SU Lavender Lace & Sahara Sand
GKD ink Wild Lilac
Tim Holtz Splatters stencil
Washi tape from my stash
SU die, leaves
Simon Says, Flower Scribbles stamp and die
Memory Box, Viviane butterfly die.
Sequins Pretty Pink Posh silver
Judy dot colored with copic marker.

Simon Says challenge for Monday is B is for change
My B is the butterfly.
                                              I will enter this card in these challenges.

  1. Your colors are quite FABULOUS! I love the splatters, even if they are not willy nilly splatters lol That butterfly looks so gorgeous amongst the chaos, that's chaos in a good sense of the word, of course! Really love your design!!!

  2. I adore this card! Great color choices, great layout, great splatter. This is just gorgeous!!!

  3. Beautiful card Barbara! Sometimes a chaos turns your work into a beautiful work of art! The butterfly looks gorgeous up against it!

  4. Love the colors you chose and the design. Love that stencil and perfect with this beautiful butterfly.

  5. Another beautiful card! I'm with you - I've never felt comfortable just throwing ink down and hoping for the best! Not comfortable because I've never gotten it to look good. I'm so jealous when I see others have such success with it!! That stencil would be perfect for me! I love the colors you used, and the washi tape looks great.

  6. This is just amazingly beautiful. Love the splatters you created and the stencil is a great tool I can see.
