Day Two - Collage

Today was a fun day, I learned techniques on using collage stamps. I have always stayed away from these type of stamps, but now I am hooked. I used Stampers Anonymous, Papillon stamps. I cut out a window from my SU die, then stamped the butterflies on the inside card, emboss with white embossing powder, mist some water, embossed again. Then came the colors, I used the new colors from SU, after that, stamped the collage over the butterflies with memento ink, finished up with some bling and the sentiment is from Hero arts. My hands were a little messy and some of the ink found itself on the border. Now that is why it is called handmade and not store brought.

Wow, Berni. That is really pretty. I love your embossed butterflies. I'm loving this class, even though it is a little, well maybe a lot, out of my comfort zone.

This drew my eye in the gallery because of the colours. Great job on THIS card but I can also totally see this as a Christmas card (different collage stamp, of course). Thanks for the inspiration!
