Hello, Crafty Makers!
This week at Shopping Our Stash, the challenge is to use an insect somewhere on your card. I don't do "cutesy" or "critter" cards, so there wasn't much in my stash that could be used in this challenge.
"The Butterfly Effect"
Every maker has at least one butterfly stamp, die, or embossing folder in their stash. I decided to approach this challenge as an opportunity to continue practicing the technique of using Distress Inks to create watercolored backgrounds. I also wanted to work more with pastel ink colors and heat embossing.
Everything used is over 5 years old.
Neenah Cardstock: Solar White and Ebony
Vellum: Papertrey Vellum Cardstock
Distress Inks: Carved Pumpkin, Picked Raspberry, Mustard Seed, Peacock Feathers, Twisted Citron
Embossing Powder: WOW Bright White Extra Fine
Embossing Ink: VersaMark Watermark Stamp Pad
