Day 2 Itty Bitty

Welcome to Tuesday's card challenge. I went back to my favourite Itty Bitty butterfly stamps today- A Friend Loveth. I used the sentiment from one of the Phyllis Harris kits at Unity called Your Wings Exist.  I love this stamp set it is my all time favourite.

I used the generation stamping technique with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Using the same ink on the stamp you can get 2 or 3 images they get lighter as you stamp. I have also seen it called shadow stamping.

The big butterfly was stamped in 1st generation and the smaller butterflies were stamped in 2nd and 3rd generation to make them look lighter. I then sponged the card in turquoise pigment ink darker around the edge then mounted it on to white card and added the sentiment.

I love how it turned my favourite scripture paired with my love of butterflies :) Thanks for visiting!
