So the class was full...

I am bummed. I wanted to take this new Hero Arts card making class at Archiver's but they were full and are booked all the way into the end of March! So I bought the stamps and made them myself at home. It's just fun to do it there with everyone. My cards turned out totally different than the cards in the class but the stamp and coloring are the same. I used a sketch I had printed out but I didn't make note of where it came from.

I colored white cardstock to match the stamped image with distress ink and a watercolor pen then punched out the flower, butterflies and tag.

On the butterflies I used the the new Stickles I bought yesterday- Rock Candy but it didn't sparkle enough for me (LOL!) so I dumped some very fine glitter on top. I think that color Stickles will work fine, it is actually just like use a Spica glitter pen in that the color is clear but has the sparkle. I think the ink wash on it was just too strong.

Anyway I am very happy with how it turned out.

That glitter stuff on the butterfly wings looks almost like pixie dust. Very pretty!
