Butterfly Thinking of You

Hi there. Here is an early peak at my new stamp set from Gina K Designs. The release party is tonight at 7PM Central at StampTV.  We have a fun evening planned for you - chatting, prizes, challenges, stamp sets reveal, design team shares, and most importantly, you can start shopping at 7 PM (CST)!

I stamped the large butterfly with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copics, starting with RV19. 

Added RV25. 

Added a little more shading with RV19 on the bottoms of the wings, then filled in with RV21. 

On the body, I filled in with C5, then shaded a little on the sides with N5.  After coloring, I cut out the image.

I cut the background of Pure Luxury White, to 2 1/2 by 3 1/2 inches, then sponged a little Memento Cantaloupe in the center. 

Sponged Memento New Sprout on the bottom half. 

Then sponged Memento Bamboo Leaves along the bottom edges. 

Then I sponged Memento Angel Pink on the top half. 

And sponged Memento Rose Bud along the top edges. 

Stamped the silhouette dogwood branch with Memento Rose Bud. 

Then stamped the same image using Memento Bamboo Leaves. I stamped it three times at full strength, stamping a second time, before re-inking, each time for more depth. 

My card base is 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 inches, Pure Luxury Bubblegum Pink. I used my corner rounder to round the bottom corners, then embossed using my Spellbinders Edgeabilities Mix and Match Classics. After embossing, I scored a line on either side, using my Scor-Buddy.

I adhered the butterfly with Pop Dots. The sentiment was stamped on a circle, cut with Circle Nestabilities, and sponged along the edges with Memento Rose Bud ink. I layered with Pure Luxury Passionate Pink and added some tiny gems & pearls to accent the embossing along the bottom. I also added some shimmer to the butterfly with my Stardust Glitter Gel Pen.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful day!

Here are some of the products I used on this card. The stamp set isn't available yet, but will appear in the Gina K Designs store, tonight at 7pm central.
