2013 Artisan Finalist Blog Hop – Day 9

Welcome to Day 9 of the Artisan Finalist Blog Hop.

Today I’m showing the last card entry I used for the Artisan Contest.

2013 Artisan Finalist Blog Hop Day 9

I started by dry embossing the edge on the front of the card, and I added the strips of DSP before cutting out the front window.  Then I closed the card and decided where I wanted to place the butterflies and greeting.  I stamped them in Versamark, and then I heat embossed in Whisper White embossing powder.  I did the emboss resist technique by using different inks with a sponge around the embossed image so that the butterflies show up.  I finished by embossing the greeting in Melon Mambo ink and adding a few pearls to the butterflies.
