Butterflies Resist!

Hello everyone! I hope you are having a wonderful week! Today I have a card to share that I made using the technique spotlighted on Gina K's Stamp TV... it's basically emboss resist. I used Layers Of Color Art Stamp set Butterfly Collector, and stamped with VersaMark, and embossed with SU! Black EP. I stamped on a yellow marbled dp, then sponged on Distress Inks in Broken China and Worn Lipstick, and just a touch of Black Soot. I matted this panel on Bazzill and Basic Black. The ribbon is May Arts silk (yummy!) and I used a CB edge embossing folder. I added various sizes of black pearls to the flowers. This was a really quick card for me and I like the way it came out. Hope you enjoyed it too!

Have a most blessed week!!!

Grace, this is just stunning -- sometimes those "quick" cards can make the best impact. I think you are still in the SSCC "peace" mode -- as this is just peaceful.

Very cool!! Neat technique and I like the embossed edge, very neat touch. I've wondered how to incorporate those cute CB edges in cards, it's nice to see them used.
