More inky butterflies

Hi, I've diecut the rest of the glossy card that I used alcohol inks on.
It made 8 butterflies and they all look different! The earlier card used a brownish one and most of the others have more of the cranberry in them.

I've succumbed to ordering more of the inks too. I thought if I bought alcohol inks instead of alcohol for a while I'd be better off! So the red wine will have to be postponed for now LOL!

I'm linking up again to the challenge at Allsorts. The theme is to use your favourite things.
So, I'm back with more diecuts.

The flourishes are cut from snippets of pink cardstock.
 I managed to position scraps over the part of the flourish I wanted to use so didn't have to waste a larger piece of card.
So, I'm visiting the snippets playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop to see what's been happening.

I'm also putting another entry into Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge where the theme is anything goes.

Materials used:
Memory Box Darla butterfly and MFT fancy flourish dies: alcohol inks - cranberry, pebble and butterscotch; gloss card; Stately embossing folder; sentiment sticker and bling.

Thanks for visiting,
Cathy x


  1. This is really pretty. I love the gold words and the butterfly itself is gorgeous!
    I must admit that I mis-read your blog post and when I read that the challenge was to use your favorite things, I thought you meant "wine"! Lol! One of my favorite things too. ;)

  2. Your butterfly is indeed beautiful! Wonderful card, Cathy.

    I had a giggle when you said you were going to buy more alcohol...not wine! lol

  7. You're too funny, Cathy! The ultimate goal, I'm thinking, is to have JUST the right balance of both alcohol AND alcohol inks!! How cool to have all those butterflies and all different. It's a wonderful technique and this is a spectacular card!! It's been so inspiring to catch up with you! Hugs, Darnell
