Sweet Stamps #14 Butterflies

Sweet Stamps Challenge this week is Butterflies Stamps or Embellishments. Sweet Stamps has a wonderful selection of Butterfly stamps and dies.


We would like you to join us in this challenge for a chance to win a $20 shopping spree at 
Sweet Stamps.  You can use any stamp for your card, but if you use a Sweet Stamps
image, you will get two entries into the giveaway!!

I stamped Bold Butterfly Large on three pieces of cardstock first, cutting the image out; putting them together with pop dots to create a faux embossed look.  The Bold Butterfly Large and Bold Butterly Medium is stamped  with White Dye Ink and embossed with  Detail White Embossing Powder. Both images were cut out using a 4-Split Peforating Tool. I colored both the Bold butterflies with gel pens.  The Little Monarch   is stamped with Versa Mark and embossed with Diamonds and Pearls and also cut it out with the 4-split tool.  Butterfly Kisses is stamped in Versa Fine Black Ink. The background was created with Cheery Lynn's Flutterbys Plate.  Before running the plate thru my Big Shot, I inked the plate with Versa Mark.  I dug out my Shimmer Dusts and dusted the butterflies for the shimmery look.  The swirl sequin embellishments are from Hero Arts.  The finished size is 4.25" x 5.50".
