Dance of the Butterflies

Afternoon All,

It's an awesome day here in Halifax! It's raining and the humidity is GONE!! Yeah....I have actually been stamping today, was to hot and humid before to even think about stamping. My friend from the Stamp Shack and I are doing 3 card challenges together. The first one was to make a card using the Dance of the Butterflies with alcohol inks.

I used cranberry, stream, and latte with the extender, and then stamped and embossed the image on top with versamark and black powder. I then rubber versamark over it and put clear embossing powder over and heated. I did that 3 times, to get the look of not just a piece of paper. I then edged the piece with silver krylon pen and layered with olive and current paper. I cuttlebugged one piece of the background olive paper with the swiss dots folder. Cut a few strips of coordinating papers and taped them together, then added my ribbon in the center. Stamped the sentiment on the bottom and embossed, then added a few dew drops for a bit more interest.

Thanks for stopping by today, and I will be back a bit later with my Thursday Challenge card!

What a striking card! Love love love the colours! :) I've had my eye on this stamp for a while - it's so beautiful! Hey, you know me and my love of butterflies! lol :)

Oh, I hear ya with the rain cooling things down isn't it great! 18C is much better that 34C! I swam in my neighbour's pool yesterday afternoon and I'm looking rather lobster-like now! :( My own stupidity, I put sun screen on my girls but forgot to put it on myself!

I'll chat with ya soon! :)
