Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger

Butterfly foliage

One last card for the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger challenge.

This card was easy to make…except for the inking part. Usually it is no extra hassle, as I use distress inks, but here I used an ink from Stampin’Up. It was a little difficult to get it onto paper and then make it blend smoothly. But once it was done, I just adhered the die cuts with a glue pen and popped the sentiment with foam dots.  The background was clear embossed with a Hero Arts stamp before applying the ink. This technique is called emboss resist, if you are new to this, you can look it up in my video tutorials.

Thanks for visiting!
