Hello once again. I have been playing with different products, recently received in the mail – so I thought I’d get away from the CAS this time – and went all in – for a card, anyway.

Here is the card:

I began by stamping the Indigo Blu ‘Big Butterfly‘ onto some patterned paper from Craft Box. I used Ultra Thick embossing powder as I wanted a shabby looking butterfly – a little uneven in the embossing. I used the same embossing powder for the Funky Fossil MDF word ‘Imagine’.

I used Distress Oxides ‘Vintage Photo’ and ‘Old Paper‘ to add some shading to the outer edges for the top sheet of paper, and also added some shading to the the roll in the upper corner. Another little piece of patterned paper under the corner, then some brown card-stock as the layer on top of the base card.

I used an Altenew ink to lightly brush across the butterfly to bring more attention to it, then added some flowers from the same Craft Box kit, as well as another butterfly near the flowers.
