Here you can see the dimension of the butterfly & the heart mat before the flowers were added.
I used Distress Antique Linen & Vintage Photo inks to stamp the CHF Freesia around the verse, from CHF Scripture Essentials. I rubbed more Antique Linen around the verse to shade the edges. The background paper was also created with the CHF Freesia stamp. I stamped it multiple times with Vintage Photo, Antique Linen and Walnut Stain and then rubbed ink over the images until I liked the color.
The butterfly is cut from black cardstock. I embossed it & then inked & embossed it with gold embossing powder. A second set of wings add another gold edge to the wings.
The little flowers were cut from vellum and embossed with a Spellbinders die. I added Vintage Photo ink and curled the petals.
I enjoyed the challenge of the Spellbinders Design Team contest. I'm still in total awe to have been chosen First Alternate. I look forward to whatever comes next with Spellbinders. Until then, I'm working on projects for Fond Memories' Spring Workshop. That's just a month away! I'm also making a few cards for Artistic Outpost. They have a new release coming out in March.
Once in awhile, I even stamp a card for a family birthday, baby shower or other important event!
I'm working on a few new samples for my blog, too.
