In Joy or Sadness

Hi Bloggers.

Totally different colour scheme to yesterday's card but still using the Cosmic Shimmer Brights Embossing Powder Set.

For the background, I randomly (ish!) stamped a butterfly from the Creative Expressions Butterfly Kiss Stamp Set using Perfect Medium. I stamped a few at a time and then added Cosmic Shimmer Lapis Pink Aurora Embossing Powder from the Brights set. When I had stamped the whole area, I heat set with my heat tool. I ran the background through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Chiaro Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the pattern and then inked around the edges with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam.

I stamped the main image from the same stamp set again using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Lapis Pink Aurora Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Wavy Rectangles and inked through the die with Victorian Velvet.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set with the Perfect Medium and embossed with Lapis Pink Aurora. I cut it out using Spellbinders Resplendent Rectangles and inked through the die with Victorian Velvet.

I tied a bow using 2 lengths of Rose Sheer Wrinkled Edge Ribbon and added a Large Circle Dazzler.

I assembled to card as shown adding some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in White around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.
