One Layer with Butterfly


Hello!  This card was made for the Mix It Up Monday Challenge at Stamp TV  and other challenges. Cat at STV wants us to use two of the things on her list that correspond with the numbers of our birthday and make a card.  My birthday is June 18, so I have to use 1 - only one layer and 8 - butterfly. That's easy enough.  I started with GKD White Heavyweight cardstock....perfect for a one layer card.  I stamped the Butterfly from GKD Take Flight set in black ink and heat embossed with clear EP.  I colored the image with Memento Markers Dandelion, Cantaloupe, and Tangelo.  Using masks for the butterfly and one made with an oval die,  I sponged an area with Distress Oxide Ink Broken China.  The blue background really makes the colors of the butterfly pop.  I finished by stamping a sentiment from the same set with the Broken China ink.
I am very pleased with my one layer card with the butterfly.
