I made this for my friend's daughter's 13th Birthday, I hope she likes it as it is not the original card I was going to make as that went horribly wrong!
I have been after the stamp set, Butterfly Beauties by the Stamp Man, for ages. It was discontinued a very long time ago and I managed to get it on Ebay recently - I was so pleased! The background is Mown Lawn, Picked Raspberry and Salty Ocean Distress Inks randomly splodged on the card then spritzed with water. I dried it with my heat gun then dabbed all over with an anti static bag before stamping with Black Versafine and embossing with clear detail powder. Without using the bag there would have been oodles of embossing powder everywhere! The sentiment is made in the same way and is from the same stamp set. The pops of colour in the centre of the flowers are painted on using undiluted ink from the same ink pads. The numbers are Cuttlebug. I kept it quite simple as I think the images are just so cool they didn't need any additions. As usual I have to apologise for not being about in Blogland much. I have spent some time with my Daughter and new little Granddaughter who is just so beautiful! People told me how wonderful it would be to be a Grandma and its so true - I love it! I can't wait to see them again, thank goodness for Skype! Thank you for visiting me - I am so grateful! Take care. Christine xx
