Stamp Something with Bugs or Butterflies


Wow, it is Friday already. This week sure has gone by fast and it looks like we are in for a wonderful weekend. Today we have another great challenge for you and for me anyway it is an easy one. The theme that has been chosen is to stamp something with Bugs or Butterflies.

I have played around with my Distress inks again. This time I have uses some Tim Holtz stamps. I have stamped and embossed the butterfly and then over stamped with a flourish stamp that I had inked and misted with water for a watercolour effect. I then rubbed on some Tea Dye ink to tone down the white of the paper.

For the background I have embossed the cardstock with clear embossing powder and a background  stamp from Hero Arts to bring out the tone on tone watermark look. The polka dotted paper is from Pink Paislee. to finish off the card I have added a few more butterflies that I punched with a Martha Stewart punch and a simple sentiment that I stamped and embossed.

I hope that you will have a go at it and join us in our challenge. I do look forward to seeing your creations. Be sure to stop by the Stamp Something blog and see the wonderful creations from the rest of the DT.
