Purple Butterfly


Carried on playing yesterday using up some scrap card and paper.   The paper has been embossed in a freebie embossing folder.    Die cute butterfly purples blended over it with those fabulous brushes, more purple blended over the top and bottom edge of the card.   A strip of TH Tissue Tape along the bottom and some purple gems on the body of the insect.   Birthday greeting from a new freebie cover set stamped with the Seedless Preserve distress ink used for the colour blending.   Little tip I picked up from the TV the other day, if you sand the top of your polymer stamps just a little to start to turn them white they take the ink and impress better, this is especially true of freebie sets where the quality of the material might not be quite as good as the more expensive ones you buy.
