Tuesday Tutorial - Inked Background & Layered Butterflies

Hi Everybody,

Here is the first Tuesday Tutorial video for the New Year and I hope to bring you many many more.
I have topped 50,000 followers on YouTube in 2017 and I am hoping it will grow even more this year
Thank you so much for all your kind wishes and for being with me again in 2018
Supplies Used:
  • Complete Card & Box Die Set
  • Layered Butterflies Die Set
  • Cube Trellis Die Set
  • Fancy Flourish Stencil
  • Distress Inks
  • Blending sponges
  • Black Sequins
  • Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue
I am aiming to keep the videos quite short so as not to take up too much of your time but I hope you enjoy them anyway.  
 The list to the products is at the end of the blog post and some of them are affiliate links which means if you buy them I will get a small commission at no extra cost to you  

You could use Distress Oxides if you have those and the look will be slightly different. 
But try any inks that you have in your own collection and see which blends you like.
 Write down the combinations and then you will always know which ink works with another 

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
