Amuse Butterfly


Here is a really quick card I made for a friend who is going through a difficult journey right now and talk about easy peasy. The other day my friend and stamping bud Patti was here and we were looking over my starter kit and she inked up the butterfly in pink pigment (love love love the Amuse pigment inks) and then took the polka dot stamp also Amuse and "kissed" it taking off some of the ink. don't you just love the result. Cut out with an oval nestie - then followed through with the polka dot on the bottom in same pink ink. Since I don't have very many colored cs yet from Amuse I used some I had in my stash and it matched very well. The thinking of you is also a very nice sentiment included in the starter kit. In 10 min. I had my card ready to mail.

this is such a great card, Shirley! I love the "kissed" look and have been thinking about doing the same. Now I'm inspired. I'm sure it will be a good pick-me-up for your friend!

Love the result you got on the "kissing". What a great distressed look. This is a wonderful example of clean and simple. That pink is a beautiful shade. Great quick card! Best, Curt

Lovely card and I love the kissing tech. I'm going to have to get a couple of the pigment ink pads from A*Muse and check them out!
