Stamping 411 #243

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:
