Butterfly Basics card for SB89

Butterfly Basics is one of my favourite stamps sets in the latest Occasions Catalogue.  It has such a wide variety of gorgeous stamps so I could not resist using it for this weeks Stamping and Blogging Sketch Challenge.  Here is my card for SB89
Butterfly Basics by Patrice www.createwithstamps.co.nz
I wanted to create something a little different so I turned the bottom of the tag into a pot.  I did this by dry embossing the lower part of the tag using the Spring Flower Embossing Folder.  I then brayered over the top lightly in black to create a two toned effect.  I then embossed the entire pot with clear embossing powder to make it glossy.

I then stamped the flowers in the pot and coloured them in using the latest Blendabilities colours.  I love how easy it is to blend the colours together to create such a wonderful look.  I also used the long edge stamp and stamped multiple down the page to create a fun background effect on the card.

I painted Dazzling Details on the flowers to bring them to life a bit, i love the sparkly effect as it brings the flower to life.  I also added a few Pearls for the finishing touches.

    The way you implemented the long stamp at the top was a fabulous idea…I thought you had embossed it. Very inventive… thanks. Hugs from Shelagh.
