Butterflies

I finished two projects today:  One is an ATC for Wicked Wednesdays challenge: butterflies.    I stamped the butterfly stamp from Unity Stamps on a background I made with alcohol inks on glossy cardstock.  Then I stamped/cut another one out and popped it on top for dimension.  I kept it simple as the background is busy. I "framed" the ATC with thin black washi tape, and added some rhinestone butterflies.



The second is a card for the HYCCT1220 challenges going on over at Splitcoast Stampers.  This one is for the Hope is in the Air challenge hosted by my tweepy/bloggy friend Lisa and for Flutterby Wednesdays- any winged creature  and 4 Crafty Chicks- dry embossing!   Go play along!

I used some older BoBunny paper- embossed with an SU folder for texture, put it on some SU cardstock and stamped and cut out three butterflies from the same piece of alcohol-inked glossy card stock.  The sentiment block is SU too, and I used a light green spica pen to add glitter to the word HOPE.  Misc ribbon finished it off!
