The Little Things

I saw this stamp from Rubber Stamp Plantation on Pat Huntoon's blog a few weeks ago and told her that this butterfly was going to come home with me. Well, here it is! Isn't it gorgeous?

I began by using temporary adhesive to adhere a circle on the card stock and then brayering on
Dried Marigold and Dusty Concord Distress Inks. I stamped the butterfly from SU's Happiness Always set in Peeled Paint Distress Ink and added three Doodlebug brads and a bow. The main butterfly was created by stamping it in Memento Tuxedo black ink and then applying Versamark followed by Perfect Pearls along with various Twinkling H2Os. I added it to the card with dimensionals and added the sentiment from Verve's Petals and Stems set.

Enjoy your weekend!

Very Nice...This for some reason reminds me of art like the Maya or Inca Indians did. It's earthy and bold. I like it!
