2 in 1

I have made this card to fit two challengs again. Firstly for SketchandStash No.7 and secondly for The Pink Elephant which is a recipe. You have to use texture, stamping and punching. I put the dark brown card through my Cuttlebut Swiss Dots folder. The squares are cut from a piece of Encaustic Art that I made a while ago. The stamp is one from an Elusive Images Plate, Butterfly Daisy Collage. It is the first time I have used this particular stamp from the sheet. I stippled some inks onto glossy card and then sealed it with Crafter's Companion Spray & Shine and when dry I stamped the butterfly with a Versamagic Chalk Inkpad called Java. I finally sprayed the finished piece with Crafter's Companion Gold Spray and Sparkle, the pic doesn't really show the sparkle. I love these new sprays. I used a corner rounder punch on all the corners. Thank you for visiting and for taking the time to leave a comment. Beryl x
