Beautiful Butterflies Die Card Sample

Isn't this nice? It just softens you and quiets you down when you look at it -and sometimes I need that! I got this card idea from Carolyn Gray, a member of The TOPICS! When she made her butterflies, she used clear embossing powder, but I used white embossing powder. Either way, it comes out so nice. You emboss your butterflies with white or clear embossing powder, then sponge whatever colors you want on your butterflies. The embossed part resists the ink so it stays white there. You can wipe away any excess ink on the embossed parts to make it show through even whiter - and it just turns out so nice and soft. You can make the butterflies really bright simply by changing your ink color choices, but I like the soft pastel look of this. Hope you like it, too!
