Going round in circles 1

 Last night my Big Shot express started making funny noises and would not pass the die through.  I think the roller had dropped but seeing as I had bought in January I was not impressed.  Phoned Amazon this morning they are picking it up tomorrow for a complete refund.  I have now ordered a Big Shot Switch plus and will be arriving this evening.  I was distraught. It was time to go through all my die cuts I have thrown into a box'.

I had a card front with circles cut out.  I found a butterfly and some backgrounds by Charlie and Pauchen that a crafting buddy I met on CAS  Facebook sent me - Leta Roberts.  So I set to creating.

I used oxide inks to blend the butterfly and gently touched the edges with gilding wax by Pebeo. I used and cut out a little the embossing Leta Roberts had sent to me.  One I blended oxide ink and wiped over with gilding wax and the other kept white and gently used the ink again over the raised areas.

 Placed the embossing on card base and used double sided foam tape for the card front panel. 

The stamp is by Creative Expressions and stamped in blue Adirondack.

So here it is
