Big bold butterfly

Isn't this big bold butterfly stamp lovely? I won it in a recent Butterfly Challenge and I think it's perfect for bright, CAS cards.

I coloured the butterfly with Promarkers  and used the same ones to colour a snippet of white card. The sentiment is stamped using a stamp that came in a recent issue of Creative Stamping, and than I used the die that came with the stamps to cut the word "Happy" from the coloured snippet. Next I covered the die cut in Versamark ink and heat embossed it twice with clear powder, to give a lovely shiny dimensional finish.

Out of focus, I know, but it shows the shine and the smooth rounded surface.

I am sharing this with

Alphabet challenge  - C for Clean and Simple 
CAS on Friday - Butterflies 
Make my Monday - Wings  
and another visit to the Butterfly Challenge, this time using the butterfly and the single element, Eminence, from the wheel.

  6. Wow this looks fabulous Jane. I love your idea to colour shade the sentiment and then to use the embossing powder over the top. I must remember to give this a try. Thankyou for coming and spinning the wheel again. Hugs Mrs A.
