I have been out of my stamp room for over a week and needed a stamping jump start. One way I do that is to participate in stamping challenges. I have done Technostamper's challenges in the past so I decided to start with her sketch.
Here is the Technostamper sketch.
I was pretty faithful to the sketch except I changed the orientation from portrait to landscape. I used some of my very favorite new paper, Pretty Petals DSP stack, the gorgeous Watercolor Wings stamp set and the Bold Butterfly framelits.
This butterfly is a 3 step stamp. First I stamped the bold/solid image in Blushing Bride. The second stamp (defines the outer edges) I inked up in Calypso Coral ink and stamped off once before stamping. The third image was inked again with Calypso Coral ink and stamped full strength.
I wanted to add a little sparkle to the card so I embossed the butterfly with Iridescent Ice embossing powder. I wonder when there will be a glitter setting on my camera?
