Oh, dear, yes I missed a challenge:( Oh, well, another day, another challenge:) Here is the sketch for the challenge over at Stamping 411 this week:
Here is my card:
I know, it looks simple enough, actually it was simple, just lots of different steps. It looks like the main image is inked, but I used VersaMark. VersaMark is a clear sticky ink that you can use for heat embossing. For this technique, I simply inked my stamp with the VersaMark pad and put it straight on my paper. It leaves kind of a shadow. It looks different on different papers. Here it stands out quite a bit, but on paler colors, it’s more faint.
I used my Framed Tulips embossing folder for the bottom. I cut off a piece and then I used my Whisper white craft ink to sponge just the embossed portion. I used my butterfly punch to cut my butterfly and then used a technique I saw in the July 2011 Stampin’ Success magazine.
As always, if you have questions, feel free to ask:) Here is my supply list:
