LOC In Flight

I am so happy to be able to play along with the Play Date Cafe again this week - I am loving the inspiration that there is over there - I used to find inspiration sketches so challenging - but now I just love them!

Something a little different this time - I have used the Layers of Color Butterfly Collector Clear Art Stamps to do a little bit of Emboss Resist with

I forgot how much I loves this technique until I saw a Tutorial Video on StampTV with GinaK the other week and Resist it is....using Distressing Inks...Tim Holt's Scattered Straw, Peeled Paint and Walnut Stain - I love the natural and earthy feel that is happening here!!  The butterflies are embossed with White Embossing Powder!

The black border is made using the Martha Stewart punch and I have added layered flowers - the material ones are individually cut from a piece of lace I had lying around, I spent ages cutting each one out individually - aren't they divine!!  Black gems have been added to the butterflies wings.

This was very quick and easy - I am going to be using this technique a lot more - it is so easy and so effective!

This card is also for the following challenges!;
Rosie-D's Challenges - All Creatures Great and Small
By the Cute and Girly - Animal Antics
