Gorgeous smooshing! Love how you used the vellum to give the butterflies more depth. So lovely!

I envy your pretty colours smooshing as what ever I try I end up with a full brown colour and mine look like my niece can do much better at playgroup, it's embarrassing !
Your butterflies are stunning with the overcoat of vellum, very pretty look. Off to keep smoothing like you showed, fingers crossed x


Love a good ink smooshed background!

I really love this card - the white behind is also just right. Your Mom will love it.
May I suggest that your kiddos put their baby finger print in a colorful ink and press it inside, then you draw fast sketchy wings and body and antenna onto their prints and let them sign above each their own butterfly. I know I would love to get that from my grands.

Beautiful card!!


adorable...I love the butterflies...


Great card Nichol. I really like how you kept the muddy part in and kept going with a fix. Sometimes I watch people's videos and they are just so perfect an intimidating. You and May Flaum are the BEST at 'keeping it real'!


Awesome smooshed color background, I love the butterflies!


I love the colors, the elegance and the lightness of this card.


Awesome Nichol, this is such great card! I love it that you used white on it, I don't think there is an other colour that would be right.Thanks for an other great idea.

What a lovely card for your children to give to your Mum for Mother's Day Nichol. What I would love to say a particular thank you for is for leaving in the point where the smooshing did not go to plan and some of the coloured inks did not blend well together initially. To learn how to put this right as a crafter is so important, so thank you for demonstrating how to put this right and continue with a project. :O)
