Big Butterflies

I have another couple of cards using my (fairly) new 'Big Butterfly' stamp by Stampendous to share today. I couldn't decide whether I wanted to use a white or a kraft card base...so I made one of each! I started by stamping a music background stamp (by Hero Arts/BasicGrey) in 'Old Paper' (on the white) and 'Pumice Stone' (on the kraft) Distress Inks. I then stamped the butterfly over the top, using Versamark Ink, before heat embossing them using embossing glitters from WOW...I used 'Vintage Amethyst' on the white, and 'Vintage Peacock' on the kraft. Finally, I added a sentiment using a stamp from the 'Fabulous Birthday' set by Hero Arts.


Here are a couple of close-ups:

I'm so glad you did this, posting 2 cards made the same way with different colors - that is one of my soapbox issues with people who don't understand stamping, that it is not "copying", the stamped images are different in the techniques of the stampers. I'm so glad you joined us at the Heartful Stamping Challenge!
