More Butterflies


Butterflies and Summer everywhere, except Melbourne Australia.
Here is my card to cheer me up and think about summer


Nice and simple.  Stamp butterfly (Stamplorations - artful flutter) in watermark ink (versamark) and heat emboss with black embossing powder (Zing - opaque finish).  Use a square die cut and emboss for a frame.  Sponge with spice marmalade and broken china (Ranger - distress ink),  Take water brush and make water happiness.

Die cut 2 squares with designer paper (KaiserCraft - fairy tales) and assemble as sketch.   Stamp sentiment (Stamplorations - Patchwork Frenzy - graphic squares) with watermark ink (versamark) and heat emboss with gold embossing powder (Zing - metallic finish).

Finally use flower embossing folder, for some texture and dimension, to dry emboss the front of the card, glue on the butterfly assemblage and apply gold glitter glue and blue gems to the butterfly for some bling.
