Happy Birthday, Kris!

A birthday card for a friend in my Yahoo! group. Happy Birthday again, Kris!

I used a stamp from a retired Stampin’ Up! set called Garden Collage. I stamped it with Tim Holtz Distress ink – Tea Dye. I colored the image with chalks. I stamped the butterfly again and colored it, then rubbed it with Versamark and embossed it with Deep Impressions embossing powder, then Versamark again, then Iridescent Sparkle embossing powder, then another layer of Deep Impressions. Then I cut it out and mounted on a piece of Pop Dot and bent up the wings. I distressed the edges with an SU! paper distressing tool and rubbed some Tea Dye ink on them. The matting, also with distressed edges, is SU! Baja Breeze. The border is die cut with a Cuttlebug die, and I used a Scor-Pal for the lines on either side of it.

Thanks so much for looking, and I hope you’ll come back and visit again soon!

Lynette, this is beautiful. Please tell us what the color is of the one embossing powder you used, not the sparkle one. Also, did you emboss the edges of the white layer, or just brush them with the tea Dye ink? Thanks for sharing!

This is lovely! The 3-d butterfly is beautiful.

Hope you're enjoying this wonderful spring weather.

Another real beauty! That 3-D butterfly adds so much. And I like the way you distressed the edges.

This is just lovely!
And again, we were nearly on the same wave-length. I used this stamp just two days ago to make an ATC. Mine looks totally different though! It will be posted tomorrow!
