More Distress Oxide Ink Smoosh

Hi, I hope you're having a wonderful day!

Here's another card from playing with the
Distress Oxide Inks (DOX)


I smooshed some ink on my craft sheet using 3 colors but not touching.

Then I spritzed with water and smooshed some cardstock into the wet ink.

I dried the piece with my heat gun, lightly spritzing more
water as it dried.

My friend Jan loves purple so I made into a birthday card for her.

The panel is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" so it's an oversized card (5" x 7")
She shared her butterfly die with me a while back.
It worked perfectly for her card!

I see that I was one of the top picks there for the last challenge.
I entered this card
Thanks, ladies!

Beautiful butterfly card and DOX b'grd....those 3 colors so good together plus soft look you got. I played for a couple of hours last night making DOX panels...definitely takes play and practice(!) but is fun. Happy Mother's Day. Hugs.

Soft and so pretty card...with a surprise! At first glance thought it was a version of second generation stamping but turned out to be some Bonnie creativity. The coloring at the bottom literally "grounds" it. I am in awe of the small splatters -- much better look than my messy blobs (smiles).
