Butterflies!

I love butterflies! Don't we all? So I was excited to find out that Jenny's challenge this week is to use them on a card. I really like this clear stamp from Hero Arts (made exclusively for Archiver's) called Butterfly Wallpaper. I've only used it a couple of times. Once here and another time on a black and white card here.



I clear embossed it on white and used the resist technique with my three favorite Distress Inks; Spun Sugar, Bundled Sage and Tumbled Glass. I then clear embossed a butterfly from the Antique Engravings set, two times and used the same technique on these, cut them out and attached to the card. The sentiment is from the Sending Smiles clear set.

Hope your Saturday is going well!
