Butterfly Birthday

Well, we’re back from vacation and I finally got a chance to stamp again. It was nice, and I’m looking forward to doing some more. Just before we left, I won some more blog candy – I’ve been very lucky that way lately! This is what I won from an on-line friend, Julie. (Thanks again, so much, Julie!!) If you are a fan at all of the Twilight series of books, you will LOVE her blog. Actually, you will love her blog even if you’re not!

I haven’t really had much chance to use the stamps yet, but I did use some of the ink. I just took the Weathered Wood ink pad and rubbed it directly onto some white cardstock. Then I stamped using a Stampendous butterfly stamp and Versafine Onyx Black ink. I liked it, but couldn’t leave well enough alone. I stamped the butterfly again, this time using the Weathered Wood pad. It was a little dark, I thought, and didn’t like it very well. But, it lightened up as it dried and I like it much better. I used my Scor-Pal to add some diagonally scored lines. I wasn’t sure what to do next! I knew I didn’t want to cover up much of the background. So, I stamped “Birthday Wishes” (from the Inkadinkado set from Julie) on white and again rubbed the paper with the Weathered Wood. I mounted both of the pieces on black and added a couple butterflies (punched with a Martha Stewart punch) with pearl bodies.

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

I like this! I always forget to let the background speak for itself. Your card does just that.
