Pen Pattern Butterflies


Hello my stampy friends! I wanted to make a quick post of a card I made for the current Curtain Call Challenge.


I just fell in love with the colors so I had to play!





I had just received this beautiful stamp set and matching dies from the 7KIDS Store called Pen Pattern Butterflies (Stampendous). I couldn't wait to ink them up! As you can see, I stamped the butterfly with Versamark ink onto watercolor paper. I heat embossed with white embossing powder. I then watercolored the butterfly with Distress Inks and water. I love that I was able to cut it out with the matching die! Yay!!!


Thanks for stopping by!!!

Wowza! I love it, Mackie. :)

Was just reading your profile, and I know EXACTLY what you mean about seeming to always be thinking about the next card design. :) We have that crafting disease, I guess!
