Fly Little Butterfly Fly

My second creation using the fabulous Eco Green Garden Chic stamp set (made entirely from recycled rubber) from Creative Expressions for this weeks DT piece.
I stamped the butterfly with VersaMark ink and sprinkled with clear embossing powder and coloured with Broken China and Fired Brick Distress Inks.
I stamped the butterfly a second time with coffee Archival ink and again sponged with Distress Inks, cut out and added to the card.
For a little dimension I added FLY to memo pins adhered with Glossy Accents.

I was also thrilled to see that I have two articles in the latest edition of Making Cards Magazine, one using Stampotique images and the other using the Vintage Typewriter set from Creative Expressions.

Thanks for stopping by, Tracy x x
