This card was totally inspired by Jackie at "Just Stamp It". She did some wonderful cards yesterday using kraft card stock and white. I chose this gorgeous new stamp from Penny Black for my card. I tried embossing it in white but anything I used to color the flowers, also colored the white embossing. I didn't even try copics because I knew they would color the embossing but it also happened when I was using my Prismacolor pencils. So on to something different.
The stamp was inked with versamark ink and then black dye ink, stamped and embossed with clear detail embossing powder. I found the lines of the image were cleaner and more delicate than using the white embossing ink used on the first attempt.
All the coloring was done with Prismacolor pencils. The white pencil almost acted like a blending tool when added to the colored images.
Our Azaleas are blooming and the butterflies and bees are all over them. Took a few pictures yesterday, and I can tell you that butterflies don't sit still for very long. Bet I looked pretty funny chasing them around the bushes :) Hope the neighbors weren't looking. But here are a couple of my favorites.
Maybe you can add a little fun to your day by chasing some butterflies. I highly recommend it!
Thanks for visiting :)
