hello butterfly card



The Muse Club challenge is Therese's very cool card, and I experimented with this week's PTI Make It Monday challenge (instead of embossing ink I used clear embossing paste and the hexagon coverplate).  I stamped the Unity butterfly in white embossing powder first thinking it would show through, but it was too light (maybe I should've used something other then white?).  So I added a vellum buttefly and added some distress ink for the coloring.  I love the idea of this card, but there is a part of me that thinks if I redid it it would be better.  But that's not going to make today's agenda, so here's attempt #1 (and there may never be a redo!).  But I love tinkering away in my craft room...  so it served that purpose.

Very clever - I love how you've used the paste to create texture on your background. Thanks for joining us at Muse this week!
