Outlines Rubber Stamp Challenge # 17

Hello!!!  It's Monday and time for a new Outlines Rubber Stamp design team challenge.  This week our challenge is to create a butterfly card.  This is SO easy to do with all the various butterfly images available at Outlines


I stamped the Butterfly Square Large (E-519) and embossed - twice.  It's one of my favorite daily techniques, because it provides a simple luster and elegance to an image without a lot of effort.  I colored with copic markers - to match my Dutch Mustard Soup patterned paper.  I may not have used the Blossom Soup paper this week, but it's hard to pass up gorgeous paper altogether...

I cut out the second butterfly and popped up on the first image.  I gently bent the butterfly's wings for dimension.

TIP: Be sure to color your base image similarly to your top (dimensional image).

Bronze pearl pen and Light Colorado Topaz crystals round out the design.  It's elegant and matches the colors perfectly of my paper.  Pure love!!!

I'd love it if you stopped by to visit the other designers for more inspiration.
