One Layer Butterflies

Happy Wednesday!  Have you had a good week so far?  It's been pretty a-okay here!  I even got some time last night to make a card that's been floating around in my head for at least a week now.  It's the first chance I've had to stamp without a sketch for a while and I'm so pleased that it actually turned out like I imagined!  First off, don't go clicking around thinking you're on the wrong blog!  {teehee}  It's still me, Julee,  {the not-so-clean-and-simple gal}, but I actually fooled my creative compass for a few minutes and accomplished an honest-to-goodness clean & simple one layer card!


The butterflies and sentiment are from the new Blue Skies set.  I stamped them with Black Soot Ranger Distress ink, embossed with clear detail embossing powder and then colored with Copics.  For the larger butterfly, I stamped an extra butterfly, colored, cut out and popped up, then added just a bit of Smooch Pearlized Top coat for some shimmer, and a couple black rhinestones for his body.  The base is A2 size, and I embossed a line 1/4" from the top and bottom, then finished off with some black grosgrain.  Easy, breezy, beautiful!  :)

Hope you have a fabulous day and get some time to create!  Thanks for stopping by!

  11. Julee~ This card is just gorgeous! I'm curious--what brand of white CS did you use for this? Does it prevent bleeding thru from the copics?
