Springtime Impressions of Butterfly Beauty

I'll admit right now that this card didn't come out as I'd hoped and I'm really unhappy with the result.  However, creativity and radiation don't seem to mix well for me so I'm presenting it anyway, with apologies.

Springtime Impressions and Butterfly Beauty
I ran a piece of Highland Heather cardstock through the big shot, set up for embossing, with the Springtime Impressions piece and then heavily spritzed it with water before gently dabbing on Gorgeous Grape and Bermuda Bay ink before leaving it to dry.

Since I wasn't happy, I repeated the spritzing and inking a few times.  Then, once thoroughly dry, I also added a little ink with a sponge for good measure!  I also added a touch of Frost White Shimmer Paint - but it doesn't show up in the photo!

The butterflies are cut using the Butterfly Beauty dies and the sentiment (stamped with Gorgeous Grape) is from the Free As A Bird stamp set.

Thank you for visiting.
'Til next time!

  1. Stephanie, we are our own worst critics, aren't we? This is beautiful. I really like the way you have embossed and colored this! I'm sure with the shimmer paint on it, it is even more lovely in real life! Big Hugs!
