I've used the Hero Art butterfly here. I stamped and white embossed straight onto the kraft cardstock. I have coloured in with Coloursoft pencils staying with reds and oranges and assed a bit of black for depth around the outside of the wings.
I added white dots then decided I didnt like them so I went back over them with the pencils each the one set of three in each area. Much happier. Added a butterfly body from a die cut butterfly set as it fits perfectly.
I stamped and white embossed the sentiment (after first checking it was straight with black ink on a scrap of paper then off stamped till I thought it was nearly clean then idiot brain kicked in and I used my versamark ink pad thinking I will ink up and stamp off till its clear and lets not think about the ink pad for at least 4 times could a person be so stupid. Yes she could lol ahh well we can but learn)
Anyway finally stamped the sentiment and embossed in white and finished off the whole thing with a few wee red gems and added Wink of Stella to the wings and they have a wonderful shimmer but it doesn't show up in the photos.. Nice, clean and simple.
I have gone without the topping for this card.
Thank you for coming to visit and I hope you come again soon.
