Onto my card

So my card this week has basically been made using one set of stamps with one extra sentiment stamp.
The stamp set I have used is called Doodles by Papermania.  I have used the paisley stamp to create the background by stamping onto white card with versamark ink, then heat embossing clear powder on top.  I have then used a sponge and spread black ink it up ink over the card, which has created the grey effect.I have then heat embossed the white flowers onto the black card.

Side inside view

The flowers are the 2 sizes of flowers with the set, I have stamped them onto white and black card and created the 2 tone flower and used a pearl gem for the centre and an xcut leaf punch for the leaves


The butterflies are again part of the set and have been stamped on alternat black and white with the accompanying gems to decorate.  The sentiment is from an unkown set and has been stamped onto a Nellie Snellen die cut, that has been heat embossed with white embossing powder around the edge.  I have added 3 pearl gems to decorate


Black version of the butterfly heat embossed with white

I will be entering this card into the following challenges




Thanks for stopping by
