Howdy! It's Sunday and that means it's time for another fabby challenge at The Paper Players! Nance is our hostess this week with this super, sketch. We would really love it if you would play along and share YOUR project with us. :)For this card, I inked up the new Strength and Hope stamp set, for the first time. This set is SO awesome because not only is is beautiful, but by purchasing the set you are also helping to make a difference in the fight against breast cancer. CLICK HERE for more details!
For my butterfly, I used a mixture of the *new* Melon Mambo embossing powder and Iridescent Ice embossing powder to add some sparkle. Mixing embossing powders together is such a fun technique. Just head to the grocery store and snag a few of those disposable "Glad-Ware" containers. You can easily mix up your embossing powders for fun combinations on your creative projects. You can mix together as much, or as little, as you need in the containers. Think of the possibilities! After I embossed and cut out the butterfly, I inked up the edges with Melon Mambo Classic ink.
There is a LOT of dimension on this card, which you can't really see in the main photo. I went a little crazy with both the Stampin' Dimensionals (25) AND the pearls (19) on this one. :)
Finally, here is the finished inside of the card, using the left-over's from the front:
