CR84FN15

We have some yummy colors this week for CR84FN15. A wonderful combination of blues, greens and yellows. 

My card is based on fun paper from Little Yellow Bicycle - Lucky Me Collection.  The yellows and greens were already blended so beautifully together and all I had to do was add a stripe of blue.  I created an alcohol ink background and stamped the butterfly with Versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder. Stamp stitching along edges of panels and emboss with white embossing powder. Stamp sentiment using versamark and emboss with green embossing powder. Accent flourishes and swirls with white gel pen.

Products: Verses Rubber Stamps Troubles Be Less MC0336-D, Hero Arts Antique Engravings,  Technique Tuesday, Alcohol Inks - Broken China, Lettuce, Mustard Seed, White Embossing Powder, Signo Uni-Ball White Gel Pen, Lost and Found Charms
