Londi's Birthday card. I tried to make the butterflies on the card match the butterfly on the necklace (which was part of her present).Stamps: Everything Eleanor & Sassy Salutations.
Colours: Blackberry Bliss, Whisper White, Naturals White, Melon Mambo, Wisteria Wonder & Tempting Turquoise.
Techniques: Brayering, White Embossing & wet wipes + ink refills.

I folded a wet wipe & added some ink refills (Melon Mambo, Wisteria Wonder  & Tempting Turquoise), this was like making a ombre or multi-coloured  ink pad. First I inked up the solid butterfly on the multi-colored wet wipe, stamped onto white card stock, the using a stamp-a-majig stamped the out line butterfly over the top with Blackberry Bliss.

After the two step stamping of the butterflies, I punched them out & added some Dazzling Diamonds.
Katrina's Birthday card.
Stamps: Everything Eleanor & Sassy Salutations.
Colours: Blackberry Bliss, Sahara Sand & Whisper White.
Techniques: Water colouring, White Embossing, Sponging & fussy cutting.

Once the flowers have been stamped onto the Sahara Sand card stock  with the Blackberry Bliss ink, you can use an Aqua Painter to colour them, by spreading the ink around (you don't even need to add any extra ink).
(You may notice the bird is stamped in Sahara Sand ink here... Well I decided I wasn't happy with that, so I used the Stamp-a-majig to go over it with Blackberry Bliss ink, & I reckon I got it pretty spot on. Happy with that)

Then I added some high lights to the flowers with a white gel pen.
