Mediterranean Butterfly

I was lucky enough to score some fun stamping time, even though the crop I was planning to attend had been cancelled.  I made a set of three cards using Unity Stamp Company's new Bold Butterfly designed by Donna Downey (I ♥ it!!) and DCWV's Café Mediterranean patterned paper stack that I traded a friend for. The color scheme really speaks to me. The teal and yellows in the stack complement each other perfectly.

Here's what I worked on:


It turns out that this was the third card I worked on during my session.  In designing this card, I used the scrap pieces from some of the stack patterns to assemble the stripes.  Then, after stamping and allowing the ink to dry, I ran the whole panel through a BigShot with a QuicKutz chevron embossing folder.



Happy Stamping!

What a large butterfly! Looks wonderful being the centerpiece. It sure does help choose which stamps to buy when we get to see them used. :)
