Blue butterflies ...

Another day, another card!

Another time consuming card ... lots of inking and embossing and waiting for ink to dry!  I created the card using the same technique that I used for my Autumn Thanks card that you can see here.  I began by inking the panel with Tumbled glass before stamping and clear heat embossing some butterflies.  I inked the panel again with Mermaid Lagoon, left it to dry and then stamped and clear heat embossed some butterflies.  I did this two more times. Then ironed the panel in an old telephone directory to remove the embossing.  I die cut the square and frame using stitched dies.  The frame is adhered flat to the card base and the butterfly panel is mounted on fun foam before adding to the card. Ta da!!

I used:
Distress inks - Tumbled Glass, Mermaid Lagoon, Salty Ocean and Blueprint sketch
STAMPlorations - Trendy Butterflies
