I found this pretty KaiserCraft Flutterby Long Wing paper last time I was at Archiver's, and tonight it occured to me that it would look nice with this beautiful lacey Artists Butterfly. So this card went together really quickly; I just rounded all the corners, stamped the butterfly on vellum with white and heat embossed it, then added it to the card, along with my sentiment, the butterfly trail and a few pearls. My husband was going by and asked if I had made that paper. When I said no, Mr. Economy asked me why I couldn't "since I have all these stamps". And I began to wonder if I couldn't just try that, so here is my result:
I used my old clear butterfly set, which contains 9 different butterflies, and stamped them with Versamark, then heat embossed them in white. Then I swirled on some worn lipstick distress ink. My butterfly on this one is 2 layers, a white one on cardstock using the same worn lipstick ink, and the top one a pearly pink vellum embossed in white. I was afraid to stamp directly on my homemade background because of the embossing, so I added my sentiment on a vellum strip. And for the same reason I used pearls this time for my butterfly trail.
