Sunday color challenge: Fly

Today I have worked on a color challenge using
Michael Strong's large and mini butterfly rubber stamp
and a sentiment by Penny Black from the set Happy Thoughts.

You find other samples and the details on the

Starting the background panel with the large butterfly.
I embossed it with clear embossing powder after stamping
the butterfly random at the paper.

Next taking worn lipstick and fossilized amber oxide
distress inks to color the paper. The clear embossing
works as a resist and makes the butterflies pop up.

The sentiment is embossed with silver embossing 
powder and cut out with an oval die and for the
silver paper I used the matching scallop die.

The mini butterflies have also been embossen
with silver embossing powder, but on yellow
and pink paper. The have yellow and pink gemstones
on top, but yellow on the pink and pink on
the yellow butterfly.

For the inside of the card i used all the left overs.
(I stamped a few extra butterflies in case I
did not cut them out nicely ;-).

Thank you for looking
and have a creative day!
