Happily Grateful


I have been having so much fun making up some sample cards with stamp sets that will be in the new TAC catalog. This set has 8 stamps, the butterfly is just beautiful and love the leafy vine. For this card I used embossed resist and stamped the script as my background and then stamped the leave vine in versamark and embossed with clear embossing powder. I then applied green ink with a sponge dauber which really brought out the leaves. I edged with burnt umber to give a bit of distress look. The best part is the butterfly which I stamped with brown memento ink then colored with copic markers, popped up the butterfly with pop dot foam, colored the crystal bling that my friend Chelsea sent to me. You can color these with copics to match your focal image, how much fun is that!!! Tied with a sheer brown/white polka dot ribbon and mounted on dk brown cardstock.
