Hello Friend with IBS

Hello Stamping Friends!

Today I am on the Inspired By Stamping Blog!!

I decided to finally try a fun background technique I have been wanting to do for a long time now!  You know how it is...there is NEVER enough time in the day to do everything you want to do!

So I finally decided to take some time to give it a try and I am so happy I did, I love how this card turned out!!

I started by grabbing a few supplies:

I started by grabbing my Distress Inks I wanted to use, in this case; Seedless Preserves, Wilted Violet and Dusty Concord! 

I grabbed a Round Blending Tool for each color.  And began to have some fun!!
I pressed the tool onto my ink pad lightly and then pressed it onto my white cardstock!  I repeated this step a few times!

It started to look something like this...
 How fun!  Just think of all the fun possibilities!!!

I continued with my other colors as well until I was satisfied with my background...

I then grabbed the Butterflies stamp set and inked the pretty butterflies with my StazOn Opaque White Ink and randomly stamped them on the background I created...
Above is a look at one of the stamped butterflies!  Continue reading to see my finished card!!

Here is a look at my finished card:
I absolutely LOVE how it turned out!!

I used the Fresh Bouquet stamp set for the lovely 'Hello' sentiment and the Big Wonderful stamp set for the 'friend' sentiment!

I finished off the card by adding some lovely IBS Flowers and some silver rhinestones!!
