Elegant Butterfly

Happy Friday Everyone!
                                        For my next project this week, I decided to make a textured card inspired by Jennifer McGuire watercolor+ texture paste video tutorial.  I love all her easy steps techniques:).
Here is my creation:


I started by making my own embossing paste and applied this paste using a stencil on a white textured panel and waited till it dried completely. To color my background I used watercolor cakes using Autumn color theme too , this gave me a wonderful texture:). After that I used an archival ink to stamp a Harlequin patterns randomly.
  I made one more extra panel and stamped a floral blossom using Versamark embossing ink pad and Wow metallic copper  embossing powder.  This time I used distress inks to create my BG. Then I matted both the panels on Silver sheet. And adhered it on my Raspberry pink CS.
   I added a border at the bottom edge of the CS..

A gorgeous butterfly stamped on a piece of vellum and heat embossed in Silver Platinum Sparkle and colored it with distress markers from the backside.
 The sentiment is embossed in metallic copper. I embellished my card using a silver edged white colored ribbon and added a jeweled leaf brooch on it, bling and few pearls were added at the border.
 
 
  I  love how stencils add a great impression with combining stamping:) Glad to see the result, isn't it!
I hope you like it!
