Let Your Dreams Soar and Take Flight

I love that sentiment... Its from one of my new Penny Black sets.  It works so perfectly with butterflies, which are my new passion.  Yes, I'm behind the times, but I really like them right now!  

So I was playing around with my Distress Inks,  trying to figure out what I was gonna teach in my up coming class.  I decided to use a technique that I saw Jennifer McGuire teach on the Two Peas YouTube channel, where she stamped with water on Distress Inks.  Love the way it looks.  I used this technique on the background stamp (also Penny Black) and then stamped the butterfly using gold paint (dabbers) again.   I finally used my new Distress Ink pads.  The pink is from the new summer seasonal distress inks called Picked Raspberry.  OMG!  I Love Love Love it!  Then I used shaded lilac for the purple.  Its like a periwinkle purple- totally my style.  Loving these new Distress colors!

I'll be back soon to show you what else I'm gonna teach...  See you soon!
