Three of a kind
So excited this morning! Julia sent me some of the new Andy Skinner stamps to have a little play with. the dust sucky thing was abandoned and the inks came out. This Butterfly is from the Batik Garden set, so it had to be a faux Batik technique to start with.
Butterfly stamped and embossed in clear, Brilliance inks tapped over in a sort of flower design. When you rub over the embossing the beautiful pattern on the wings is reveled.
Certainly did not want to stop there! While having a little blog hop yesterday came across a new to me challenge OLW no idea what that stands for but that is not going to stop me joining in LOL
This time I used the same butterfly stamp in SU Celery Green and stamped it three times on and slightly off the card. I have chosen a very small sentiment in a contrasting colour as an accent.
The third card embossed in Copper has I think a more masculine feel to it. The block sentiment and metallic colour embossing seem to stronger bolder and more planted on the card.
Why are they all thank you cards? Well one layer cards are by definition CAS cards and that can only mean Less is More who are thinking of either Thank you or Congratulations cards.
Best get back to the chores now.
