I wanted to share a card I made last week -- inpsired heavily by one I saw on the Hero Arts blog. I painted in the green and blue background on watercolor paper. The butterfly was first inked up with a pink pigment ink and then I came back and kissed the stamp with a purple palette ink. Once I embossed the butterfly, I cut it out. This set from The Angel Company is perfect for two step stamping or "kissing".
Lastly I attempted to paper pierce like my good friend Silke does on many of her cards. It's actually harder than it looks and I managed to get a little crooked on the bottom, hence the buttons and ribbon! sigh...Maybe I should have just started over for a cleaner look but with buttons being all the rage, I thought it might "work".
