Double Z Fold Challenge

The technique this week at Come and Get it Challenges is the Double Z Fold.  You can find a tutorial on this technique on the Split Coast Stampers web site. 
I made a variation to the tutorial by adding a sleeve to close the card.  I also used the distressed ink water colour technique to colour images.  I like the watery effect of the wet distressed inks give.   I used several different stamps for the card.  The panels of butterflies are by Michael Strong Rubber stamps, the “Just for you” stamp is by Rubber Stampede, and “It’s your day” stamp is by Hero  Arts.  The flowers are part of a Hero Art stamp and cut set , my new toy that I just love.
Now it is your turn to try the double z fold card.  Come join the fun at Come and Get it challenges.  http://comeandgetitchallenges.blogspot.ca/
Have a creative day and thanks for stopping by.
