Butterflies and More


Another day in the crafting room, creating another card with my favorites, distress inks and water.

Here is my card.

Simple card really.  On a white base cardstock I punched out small butterflies, stamped sentiment (with watermark ink (versamark) and heat embossed with black embossing powder (Zing, opaque finish).  Next I sponged dusty concord and broken china and spritzed with water (love the droplets, spritz from the side angle) and heat dried.  I found lovely blue designer paper (KaiserCraft - fairy tales) and glued it on the back with a border too.  Taped (double sided tape) the panel onto a blue textured card base.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges :-

Time Out Challenges - #11 celebrations (option butterflies)
Stamplorations Blog - August Challenge - Stamps and Die Cuts

Stamp set used for the sentiment
( I cannot locate the name, so here is a picture)

Here is the lovely designer paper I used (clik on right picture to see the detail in butterflies)

This is the true color of the front panel, which was taken a little bit earlier

Apologies for the pictures, my camera was not co operating when I wanted the final shot, but I think the card looks alright in those colors too.

Thanks for stopping by and have a Great Day
Cheers Monika
