Tri-Shutter Reinker Technique Floral Butterfly Card

This was a card I did for a Stampin' Up! monthly card contest last year. I didn't win, however, I was very happy with how this card turned out.  The Tri-Shutter Card base is 5 1/5" x 12".  It is scored vertically at 2", 4",8" and 10".  The horizontal cuts are from 2" -10".  You can cut them at any two dimensions you want depending on the stamps used.  I would give you exact dimensions, however, I submitted the card and did not make a second, all I have are these pictures.  Several of my downline/customers who saw the original requested the picture be posted as they wanted to recreate it.

Tri-Shutter, Re-inker technique, Fifth Avenue Floral Card

I love the reinker technique. It really shows up well in the close up of the flower and butterfly. The half-backed pearls on the butterfly and the filigree brad on the flower adds the finishing touch to this card.

Reinker Technique:  1) Stamp image with Versamark ink  on Shimmery White card stock and emboss.  I used silver  for this image. 2)  Wet all areas inside the embossed image. 3)  Using an aqua painter or paint brush, add reinker color by touching you paint brush to the wet surface where you want each color. They will merge together to form this unique look.  If they don't your paper is not wet enough.  If you get too much water you can use a corner of a paper towel to absorb it.  Have fun experimenting with different colors!
