By Marybeth Lopez

Hi there , Marybeth here today ! I hope you enjoyed the new products and Mini Blog Blitz!

Today I used the new Stitched Butterfly Trio , Memory box Stitched Hexagon Layers ( love those!) and Into the Words clear stamp set.

Im sharing a card with a design I made a few years ago, its been a while since I curled any blooms or butterflies.

Very simple as you have seen some of the other Design Team members already do this technique. Simply roll the die cut with any small item , I used a crochet hook.

I used a brush to blend some inks onto a piece of card stock . I think the brush has a softer look and I have more control of the even-ness!

I used two colors of ink to give e a bit more detail to each die cut. After the butterflies were cut out I brushed along the sides to cover up the white and give a bit more color to each edge.
