Wonderful Butterfly

Hello! This card was for the Featured Stamper challenge at SCS the other day. I chose this card for my inspiration. The challenge is to case and change at least two things. I changed...

Different stamps
Different Layout
Added sponging

I used three different stamp sets from Gina K Designs, Many Wishes, Take Flight and Tropical Flowers. I accidentally deleted most of the photos for this one (oops!), but here are a few...

First I cut a rectangle using my Nestabilities and sponged with Old Olive ink while it was still in the die, leaving a narrow white border. Then I placed post-its around the edges to mask off the border before stamping my flowers.

I used Copics to color the butterfly. (Y23, E35, E37, YG93 and YG95)

I layered with Pure Luxury Black Onyx and Soft Sand, and SU Old Olive.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope your day is wonderful!
