Hope Your Day is Fabulous

TT Elegant Emerald

Here's my take on the Tuesday Trigger at Moxie Fab World.  I just finally got some of the limited edition colors of distress inks from last year, and I decided to blend 3 of them (peacock feathers, evergreen bough, and mowed lawn) onto white cardstock to make this background.  Maybe because my foam pads were new also, they weren't blending as nicely as usual, so I spritzed the paper with some water, and then things got easier.  After that panel dried, I used a Hobby Lobby butterfly embossing folder to give it some more dimension.  then I stamped the butterfly and my sentiment on some scraps of the same and added them on top.
