July Design Team Submissions - Inky Butterflies

Hi, guys!  Hope all is well.  I finally found some time to get INKY today and thought I would share the two cards I made with you.   These are the first two of my July Design Team submissions for The Ink Pad NYC. This month I was given Maya Road butterflies, and Dylusions spray ink to work with.

I was given Ranger's Cut Grass Dylusions spray.  I really love this stuff.  I have it in a few other colors, so I included Crushed Grape Dylusions spray also.   I love the vibrant colors.  For this card I just misted it on dry card stock.

For the next card, I used the Dylusions spray on glossy card stock with water to obtain a watercolor look. The colors of the sprays I used on this one are Pure Sunshine and London Blue.  The butterfly on this card is by Stampers Anonymous and the background is by Hero Arts. The hardware is by Tim Holtz.

I had fun making these cards.  Have a cardboard box handy when you are using spray inks.  It really does keep your work surface clean as well as containing the ink from going airborne (take it from one who knows firsthand!)  I know there are little boxes made for use with spray inks, but really any old box will do (and it will save a tree to recycle one you already have!).

I look forward to sharing the next few cards in the upcoming days.  Stay cool, my friends!

Very pretty cards. I'm not familiar with the Dylusions spray ink but think it would be wonderful for my mail art.

Love the colours on both. The first is so pretty and vibrant, and the second has such relaxing colours which work perfectly with the 'Breathe' tag.

I love both cards, but the second one is really my favorite. I need to check out that spray, it looks interesting. :)

Winnie, I love all the cards in your butterfly series, but these two are my favorites. They have a real painterly feel and the colors are amazing. Blessings!
