Today I have a card for you made with Fourishes Butterflies and Blossoms Stamp set. This card was made for the Page Maps Blog Sketch Challenge where flourishes is one of the sponsors along with Basic Grey. The prize is to die for. You can never have too many of these gorgeous stamps. I sure wish I had more.
The paers, ribbons, stick pins and glitter gel glitz are all from Close to my Heart.
The Flowers and Butterflies were stamped with Memento Black Ink then heat embossed with Clear Detail Embossing Powder to give it a little added dimension. They were then colored with Copic Markers.
The Butterflies were stamped and colored twice, then cut out and layered with foam tape on the wings for more dimension. I touched their wings with stardust glitter gel glitz.
I added some Faux Flower Soft to the centers of the flowers
I had these stick pins fro a few years and never used them before. I thought they aded the finishing touch to this card. I just wish I could get my pictures of my cards to look as good as they do in person.
The Hand Stitching was done with matching Embroidery Floss.
