Butterfly Reflections Ink April Mood Board

Today, I have a card to share that I was inspired by the


Isn't it pretty?
I was inspired to make my card using Altenew's Wild Hibiscus stamp set.

 
I stamped the flowers in Wplus9 Ocean Drive and Altenew Cotton Candy.
The butterflies were stamped in Altenew Warm Sunshine and the sentiment in Altenew Moon Rock.

 
I was really happy with the design of my card, so I decided to repeat it several times,
using my MISTI.

 
Here, I stamped everything the same, but decided to colour in my elements,
using ink pressed onto an acylic block, water and a paintbrush.


Here, I stamped the images & sentiment in versamark on some watercolour paper
and heat embossed them in white. Then, I coloured them in using my Zigs, water and a paintbrush.

 
Here, I stamped everything in Versafine onyx black on watercolour paper,
before colouring in the images with my Zigs, water and a paintbrush.
 
And, because, when I stamped my last card, I thought it looked cool in black and cream...

 
I stamped everything in black on a piece of vintage cream cardstock and adhered it to a piece
 of black cardstock, so there'd be a strip along the bottom.
 
So, there you have it... a "Five for Friday" of a different sort for today -- five cards, one design.
Do you have a favourite?
Sage's is the fourth one. :)
 
Thanks for looking!

every one of your cards is so lovely - what a great idea to do the same design so many ways - and the black and cream is wonderful!!

Omgosh! What a fabulous design, Leigh! I absolutely LOVE how the images are clustered at the top, leaving all the white space below. And I'm in awe of all your different versions! Each one I see I think, this is my favorite... until I see the next one! Love the graphic black and cream. Such a cool look. But I really love them ALL!

They are all gorgeous! I'm wavering between the black and white one and the watercolor background one as my favorite.
