I was inspired by the deep blue midsummer skies we've had here since this past Thursday when we've had almost constant thunderstorms, day and night. The colors on my background look like what I see when I look out the window, with the rain beading up on the glass. I applied DecoArt chalky blue paint with a brayer to a watercolor paper panel and blended it randomly with Faded Jeans ink. I splashed it with water and also Seedless Preserves oxide ink.
I die cut Organic Thinlits from watercolor paper and colored it with a paint brush and Distress oxides: Bundled Sage, Peeled Paint, Chipped Sapphire and Seedless Preserves and Ken Olivers Indigo Color Burst. I blended a scrap of watercolor paper with Faded Jeans ink and dipped it in puddles of Seedless Preserves oxide. I die cut three little flowers from the scrap using the Funky Floral #3 Thinlits set and tucked two behind the Organic die cut and adhered one to the top, all with foam adhesive.
The Organic die cut is popped up from the blue background with foam adhesive, giving it a bit of dimension and texture. The Flutter butterfly is stamped in Cobalt and Black Soot Distress archival inks on a scrap I colored with Indigo Color Burst. I shaded it with a paint brush and Chipped Sapphire oxide and die cut it with Flutter Framelits. I finished the card with a Small Talk sticker edged with Chipped Sapphire oxide.
Here are some closeup photos to show the detail.
