Friend


The card I made today takes care of three challenges! Two challenges are over at Paper Craft Planet, one for the sketch and one for mojo cafe, to use your favorite stamp. The next challenge is over at OCC to use and emboss resist technique. Now on to how the card was made.
1. Stamp the butterfly from the Butterfly Beauties set by Stampendous on white glossy paper with VersaMark ink and emboss with white powder.
2. Sponge the panel with pink dye ink and sponge the edges with purple dye ink.
3. Stamp "friend" from Stampendous with black Brilliance ink on the bottom of the panel.
4. Apply three circle stickers by Stampendous in the center of the butterfly.
5. Layer onto black paper. Emboss white paper with a CuttleBug folder and layer onto purple and black panels. Glue down ribbon onto a white card, mount all pieces and a bow.
Now it's time to get some housework done before the hubby gets home. Have a great day :)

Jamie, you out did yourself on this one. Of course the purple caught my eye immediatelly (and how ironic I have a lavender shirt, with a pink sweater on today). I zoomed in on the photo, and that embossing is beautiful. Is that two different stamps? You may have said, I will go back and look.
