Collage

This card went out to a long time on line cardmaker. She is into mixed media stuff now and so I tried to do a little bit of an artsy look to this card.  Used a couple different stamp sets and some stenciling. Hand cut the flowers.  I used a glitter pen on the butterfly but just couldn't pick that up in my pictures.


Tim Holtz -- Papillon stamp set for Background and butterfly
Hero Arts -- CL426 stamps for Flowers and stem
Tim Holtz-- Dot Fade stencil (added to the background in a couple of places) using Forest moss distress ink and also used that ink around the edges of the card
Pearl pen-- Salmon (centers of the smaller flowers)
Spica pen -- twinkling like stars  on butterfly

My daughter and son in law will be here this afternoon, I am getting very excited to see them.  We are having a bit of rain here this morning so I am hoping that they are not going to hit any bad storms.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I appreciate you letting me know,
Have a great weekend!

Connie
