I embossed the Swallowtail with clear powder, then sponged Blushing Bride, Pear Pizazz and Garden Green around the image. Then I stamped the sentiment in Soft Sky and added it under a Soft Sky patterned paper flower.
Rachel suggested that I nix the darker Garden Green ink and stamp the sentiment in a darker ink. The Garden Green kind of distracts the eye.
These were simple changes, but what a difference it made!
It’s much softer, and the sentiment (from Banner Greetings) really pops in Island Indigo ink. I need to add just a bit more ink around the center of the butterfly, but all in all, I like it much better.
Rachel is think about starting a blog – “Rachel Says…” If you want, you can send her cards (either real or digital) and she’ll give you ideas to give the card a different look.
Leave me a message if you’re interested and I’ll pass the info on to Rachel. I’ll also post a link when she gets her blog up and running.
Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy – and have a wonderful day!
