Butterflies Three

Posted by on June 17, 2012 in Challenges, Hero Arts | 19 comments

Popping in quickly with another card for the current Hero Arts challenge which has a ‘Thinking of You’ theme. I inked up my new Hero Arts Leaf and Floral background in Versamark and clear embossed. I then used several blue Distress Inks over that…they resisted the embossed areas. I used a MFT butterfly die. Easy! Oh and the dry embossed border was done on my scoreboard.


Stamps: Hero Arts Leaf and Floral Background (CG405), Hero Arts Classic Messages (CL414)

Ink: Versamark watermark ink, Distress markers – Chipped Sapphire, Faded Jeans, Broken China

Card: AnnaBelle Stamps smooth white pre-cut cards

Other Supplies: Blending tool, Hero Arts embossing powder, Heat tool, Basic Grey – buttons, AnnaBelle Stamps 0.8mm twine – natural, Martha Stewart scoreboard, MFT – Die-Namics butterflies, Cuttlebug, Zots glue dots

Thanks for stopping by,
