I stamped a butterfly pattern in embossing ink, added white embossing powder to the water-color paper and water colored over the embossed butterflies.

I mounted the wc panel on a slightly larger black cs panel to frame it.IMG_4162 copy

Next, I stamped a butterfly on acetate, heat embossed in white, die cut the butterfly and attached it with some Tombow liquid glue. I’d like to play this card at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog’s: Try to Resist.
