Hey friends!! Popping with in a card that I made using the current layout from CAS(E) this Sketch. I will also be posting this to the Essentials by Ellen special pin-sights challenge, as well. When I made a card a few days ago using the Essentials by Ellen Up the Happy stamp set I had a couple of butterflies left over that I didn't use. I decided to color up a couple more and use them for this card. The butterflies were stamped with VersaFine Vintage Sepia and then colored with ZIG clean color markers and clean water. Once they were dry they were over stamped with VersaMark watermark ink, iridescent embossing powder applied and heat set. After die cutting with the matching die I set about getting the card finished up. I'm not going to lie... getting the card finished took me awhile. The hardest part was getting the sentiment centered, but using my mini MISTI made it a little easier. The sentiment is from the Concord & 9th Layers of Love stamp set. Once the card was assembled I added a sparkling clear sequin from Pretty Pink Posh to the body of each butterfly. Simple, but pretty I think.
Thanks for stopping by today... would love to hear what you think!!
