Welcome to Just Us Girls Challenge #520, where our lovely Vicki has selected this lovely butterflies and blooms photo as this week's inspiration. Those butterflies...swoon!
While I have
too-many-to-mention a few *ahem* butterfly stamps/dies/stencils in my collection, I recently watched a Crafters' Companion video featuring their 3D Embossing Folders and Stencils sets. A local retailer carries a variety and I succumbed to purchasing ONE (and only one! Truth!). I'm so easily influenced *grin* Anyway, below is my card: embossed background and butterfly, then distress ink stenciling over the butterfly. I definitely need more practice to do justice to the combination but, for now, I'm okay with the result for this challenge. The butterfly is also coated with Perfect Pearls for a lovely sheen which, in real life, makes it much more vibrant. No sentiment; it's one of those 'generic' cards that can be used for any occasion.
That's it from me; looking forward to seeing your photo-inspired projects in the gallery!
Thank you for dropping by!
