When creating cards, I love to head to Retro Sketches to check out their newest challenge. They never disappoint! Here's the current card sketch up on their blog:
And here's my take on it:
I love this butterfly stamp from All Night Media that I picked up from my local scrapbook store. It was heat embossed on glossy paper. Next, I added teal Mica Gloss to the image with a waterbrush. The water thins out the ink to give a subtle color. I adhered the butterfly only at the center with Glossy Accents. My favorite part of this card is the sentiment. It's a Class A'Peel Sticker from Stampendous. It makes it quick and easy to create a faux embossed image!
