For You My Friend

Here's a little something I've been working with. I'll be catching up with comments tomorrow evening if you're waiting to hear from me. The weekend went so busy all of a sudden and a dear friend saved it! Love ya!

I used:
Penny Black Fireworks stamped with Memento Paris Dusk and second time slightly off the first image with embossing ink and heat embossed with fine clear powder.

The sentiment is from Expression Obsession, stamped with Memento London Fog for background and Paris Dusk for tag. The background was stippled with Distress Inks.

Ovals were cut out with Spellbinder die and scissors, butterflies and rounded corners were punched out.

Some Liquid Pearls and 3D tape were added for dimension and texture.

I would like to enter:
Less Is More: Friends
Charisma Cardz: Punch It (the corners and the butterflies)

Warm hugs
Maarit

  6. Like the effect you have achieved with the stamping and embossing over the top. Not heard or seen that done before. Must give it a try. I like the butterflies off set down the side too. Hugs Mrs A.
