CardArt Thinking of You...

This card was really hard to photograph. The reflection off of the acetate made it difficult to get a good picture, and that is such a shame. Because in real life, this card has much more color and depth. And it's really pretty, if I do say so myself! LOL!

The stamp I used is Hero Arts CardArt Thinking of You .

I stamped it on the designer paper using VersaFine Onyx Black ink . Then I stamped it again on a piece of acetate using StazOn Black ink, and layered it over the stamped image on the designer paper.

To embellish, I put some Stickles Glitter Glue on a scrap of light blue cardstock. After it dried, I used a punch to get the three small circles for the centers of the flowers. I adhered the acetate to the card by putting a glue dot where the flower centers are, then covering them up with the punched Stickles circles.

The red gems in each corner and on the tail of the butterfly are Hero Arts Red Gemstones . The designer paper is from Fancy Pants.

Thanks for stopping by....more tomorrow.
