Floral Papillon



Crazy Amigos theme this week is Tim Holtz.

This card was created predominantly with stamps from the Tim Holtz range at Stampers Anonymous available in the UK from The Stamp Attic, plus my old fave, the foam leaf stamp(great for stamping gloopy paint etc).

This card also fits the theme of this weeks Saturday Surprise theme which is Wild Things.(butterflies are wild I guess...not in the mad wild but wild and free sense lol)

edit... the leaves on this occassion were inked using a very juicy gloopy ink pad (although my fave use for that type of stamp is paint) and then ep sprinkled only on certain areas. The dots on the butterfly panel were created by applying colour through sequin waste using it as a stencil ...the same sequin waste that I glued to the lower part of the card, creating a positive/negative effect.

and it's mine!! I was going to ask you how you did the leaves, it looked like embossing powder, was that paint then? it's a fab effect, even more so in real life.
