Flutterby Butterfly

This card was a result of using my previous project as inspiration and adding in a couple of summer challenges.

The first challenge was to add layers.  I used stamps away stamp n colour card which is semi glossy.  The archival resist technique used in the previous project involves at least two layers, first the stamped archival ink, then the distress.  I used the summer colours, picked raspberry and salty ocean.  I added a third layer by stamping butterflies with clear ink and clear embossing.  I then added a fourth layer using mowed lawn distress ink.  The black swirl is stamped onto the distressed cardstock and embossed with WOW ebony embossing powder. 

I added another dimension by making an acetate wrap onto which I stamped and embossed the sentiment.  Finally I stamped some butterflies and embossed them using WOW white pearl.  I then took some cosmic shimmer mica powders in colours matching the inks and dusted that over the embossing before reheating.  I cut out the butterflies and adhered them to the acetate front.

All stamps used were by Sheena Douglass

I would like to enter this project into Hels Sheridan's Sunday Stamper Build your layers challenge  , the Country View Crafts Summer Sizzler challenge and the WOW embossing powder summer and sunshine challenges
