Birthday card needed....F

Oh dear, I nearly forgot about making this one lol.  It is for my stepmother for the 17th.  

I stamped the image using versafine and then heat embossed it.  I am unsure of the stamp company, think it may be the English stamp company???  I coloured the flower using distress inks using a brush.

  I covered it in rock candy as I did the sentiment (Diesire stamps) I used my bigshot, first time in a very long time and used the oval dies.  I used a butterfly die but cannot remember the manufacturer for this one.  It will come to me at some point but by the time it does this post will be way down the list lol.  

I matted using white and black card.  I stamped the black background using a huge La Blanche scroll design stamp in white and then heat embossed.   I wiped mahogany DI round the edge of the card, the flower image, butterfly and the black background.  I used inka gold just on the edges.  I finished off the butterfly with stamens as the feelers and tiny diamante stones (which needed dusting off through lack of day light lol) for the body.

Thats it for now just the pics to peek at. I am sorry there are so many and the poor quality but I found this one quite difficult to photograph.  If I get better pictures taken I will upload and replace these.








Please call again and hope you enjoyed your visit.
