I have had a busy week - I have been working away from home and that is unusual for me so  Thursday evening I decided it was time to stamp!!  I think I may have been going through stamping withdraw :)  on to this posting. I saw the sketch from Create with Connie and Mary and really wanted to use the simply pressed butterfly that I showed yesterday on it somehow.  The flower is a new to me technique: (I have another posting that has this technique on it earlier this week)  it uses stamp pads, crystal effects, window sheets and reynolds wrap from your kitchen!!!  I know that's not stampin' up but it is such a georgeous look  so sparkley!! the picture just doesn't do it justice.  I  added some color to the simply pressed clay with a reinker, rolled it out, then stamped in it, and left it to dry overnight.  I then added to the butterfly with the stampin' up markers, just outlined some of the lines with a darker marker and black for the center. It is hard to tell from the picture but I cut around 3 of the flower petals and popped them up for dimension.  The butterfly wings are also popped up,  thanks for stopping by I'll try to add a list of supplies used later.


supplies:  Secret Garden stamp set and framelits  Yippee-Skippee
card stock:  Island Indigo Pool Party Quatrefancy DSP
Accessories:  simply pressed clay, window sheet, (reynolds wrap) crystal effects,  Decorative Dots emb.folder, candy dots,
stamp pads/markers;  black stazon, island indigo, flower made with 3 shades of stamp pads, each gradually darker can't find my list, think it might have been daffodil, curry and tangerine.
