Here I've been having yet more fun colouring die cuts. I began by dipping this Alexandra Renke butterfly in a few puddles of different green Aqua Tint Inks from Spectrum Noir, spritzed it with water and allowed to dry. I then stamped a tiny script stamp from SU (French Foliage) in Frayed Burlap DI, inked the body with Frayed Burlap and went around the edges with some Brilliance Gold Ink. Then I stuck a whole bunch of sequins randomly over it. I die cut the Memory Box (Distressed Baptisia Collage) corner die from the front panel and stamped the sentiment also in Frayed Burlap. I had always found it difficult to stamp with Distress Inks, but having a stamping tool like the MISTI means that any gaps can be accurately overstamped and a perfect image achieved.
