Girly, you rock! A card for MUSE Challenge #30

Therese Calvird is the Monday Muse at Muse Challenge #30.  Her card is stunning!  See what I mean?
Well, I love sponging with inks.  Plus...I adore Therese's work.   So I HAD to play along with this challenge.  Had. To.

Here's my card.

I used Stampin' Up's whisper white for my inked panel.  It has such a nice, smooth surface for blending.  After applying the 3 distress inks, I spattered a few drops of water onto the panel.  Once it was dry, I stamped my butterflies.  I stamped my sentiment on a piece of white PTI cardstock, then adhered my inked panel.  It's all attached to the card base with dimensional adhesive.

Love this technique..and this was such a quick card to create.  I can't say that very often, can I???  Quick?  Not usually!

Anyway, thanks so much for taking a look!  I appreciate your visit.  :)

Cardstock: whisper white (SU), white (PTI)
