Butterfly Postage Stamps

Sorry I missed the Friday Favorites yesterday. We had a busy day, and then my new neighbor Laura invited me over to stamp with her last night. Fun but exhausting! :-) I should be able to post them a bit later.

I used Color Combination #172 from Splitcoast Stampers for this card {CC172}. Taken With Teal, Wild Wasabi and White - I think I actually made it when it was current or pretty close so that tells you how long it's been sitting waiting for it's day in the spotlight! I decided to do a white base since I think too much togetherness of the other colors would be a bit too...much. The images are from DRS Designs. The postage stamp borders are a Cuttlebug die set, as is the embossed background. I colored the images with Glaze Gel pens - see the shiny finish in the close-up photo? After I colored them in, I sponged on some ink in the corresponding frame color.

15 people made my day!:
