I dusted off my brayer for this card. I bought it early on in my card making career and used it with variable results. I also bought coated, shiny card which is easy to blend ink on but is REALLY hard to stamp well on. No wonder I had so much trouble. Long ago I moved on to smooth or matt with much better results. I still have some though and that is what I used here.
I inked the Teal Zeal (Momento) over the top and bottom corner and a little Tumbled Glass (DI) in the middle. Then I embossed the butterflies. It's a Darice folder called Butterflies, quite appropriately. This is one of my bargains from last week.
I inked over the butterflies with a sponge to highlight them and then attempted to coat just the butterflies with Versamark. I used clear embossing powder to give a sheen.
I wanted to add a white on black sentiment, which looks very smart and is in vogue just now, but that is a step too far for me. Embossing powder too messy, white ink too tricky.
I want to give this to a friend who I don't think is into too much fuss or frills so I didn't add any extra decoration.
I'd like to enter this into:
The Butterfly Challenge - T is for teal and/or texture and
Cuttlebugmania - Butterflies. I've used a Big Shot (which is a pretty teal colour) and Darice folder.
