Teri's Permanently Perfect Butterfly Card Featuring Ranger Archival Inks

Hello friends! It's Teri with TerisMailbox posting for The Funkie Junkie Boutique! I had no idea you could ink smoosh with Archival Inks until I watched a video with Juliana Michaels. Our theme for TFJB Inspiration Avenue is Permanenty Perfect using Archival Inks.

This colorful card has multiple layers of inking, stamping and embossing as well as a three dimensional butterfly!

I have a video HERE if you prefer to watch the process.

Start with a coated cardstock (Kromacote is perfect). Using a glass mat, smoosh the desired colors of Archival Inks onto the glass. Spritz with 91% alcohol and begin dipping the shiny side of the cardstock down. Use your heat tool to dry in between. Make sure your area is well ventilated.

Use Faded Jeans Archival Ink on the top 2/3 of the panel, and Peeled Paint on the Lower 1/3, drying in between dips. Note while these specific colors are currently not in stock, there are a couple other archival ink sets that would be perfect!

Stamp one of the Vines and Roses Backgrounds using Faded Jeans Archival ink and Hickory Smoke Ink the smaller Ledger Script Stamp. If you do not use a block, it is easy to partially stamp the image.

Finish the stamping with one of the blooms from The Botanical Collage Stamp using Mermaid Lagoon Archival Ink.

Use Embossing Ink to stamp one of the Wildflowers from CMS253 and add Fossilized Amber and Rustic Wilderness Embossing Glaze. Heat set to finish.

Die cut the butterfly base from the Pink and Blue section of the rainbow smooshed panel. Cut the detail layer from White Curious Metallic cardstock.

Glue together along the midline. Fold in the center and use a pencil to curl the wings, adding dimension. Add glue to the bottom along the midline and glue to the base panel.

Finish the card up by attaching to an A2 card base and adding Label Stickers (Thought Collection).
