Bold and Blue-tiful

Hello! My card today is one I shared at the Gina K release party last week. The butterfly is from Bold and Beautiful, the new Free With Three stamp set that you get for free if you purchase three stamp sets from Gina K Designs. The sentiment and frame are from All Occasion Tags, a set designed by Tami Mayberry that coordinates with Spellbinders Grommet Tag dies.

I used Copic markers to color the butterfly, starting with V09.

Added V06.

Added V04, leaving some white space, then used my blender pen to smooth out the transition.

I stamped the tag image with Versa Mark ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. Then I sponged Memento Grape Jelly ink in the lower right corner.

I sponged Memento Bahama Blue ink in the opposite corner. I used the little flourish stamp in All Occasion Tags to add a little pattern to the corners. I used the same inks, but stamped off on scratch paper before stamping on the background, then repeated multiple times.

The butterfly was cut out and adhered with Pop Dots. I layered with Pure Luxury White, Black Onyx and used the new Blue Raspberry for my card base.

Thanks for popping in. I hope you have a fun filled day!
