Beautiful Savior Card

This card was inspired by several people.  Patti posted her card and her inspiration that came from Lizzie Jones' video on Ink Blending Through Die cuts. Check out her video HERE.
I too was inspired and decided to try it out.  Here is my card.

 I used a mask like in the video using several different color inks to sponge on color. (see color list below)  Then I cut the butterfly frames out in fun colors to really bring out the colors.  I wanted the middle butterfly to stand out so I cut two frames and attached the second one only in the middle so the wings "can fly".

The SAVIOR die was a gift from Patti and I totally love it.  I cut it in the same color as the butterfly frame (Sunset) and then cut the lower portion of SAVIOR in the pretty blue (Lagoon)  I wanted the demention that Patti was able to get on her cards by die cutting another layer of SAVIOR out of foam.  I love this effect.  I stamped Beautiful in Lagoon and added a sparkle for the "i".

This card was a blast to make.  I think I will enter it in a few challenges.... Lets see I used SNIPPETS for all the butterflies and SAVIOR so I can enter it in Pixies Crafty Workshop Challenge and because I used butterflys and Tulip (use color red in challenge)  I can enter it in the Butterfly Spot Challenge.
I used dies, so I will enter in the HLS May Anything Goes with Dies Challenge.
And since the whole event was inspired by ... Make It Monday #248: Ink Blending Through Die Cut Masks 
Be sure to check out the video.
Thanks for stopping by and know that I had a blast making this card and my INKYFINGERS happy!  Might have to focus a little on layouts since I am behind on my scrapbooking!  Anyone out there do layouts as well as cards???  Let me know in your comment.  Thanks again!
