Real Soft Bayou Love


Todays colors challenge is real red, soft sky, and blue bayou. Essence of love was the first thing that popped in my head since Ive been wanting to use it w/my new Martha stewart butterfly punch. So I went with it. I stamped the main image onto glossy cs inked with versamark and then blue bayou. I heat embossed the image w/clear detail ep. Ive been wanting to play with my brayer lately so I inked up the brayer w/soft sky and I love how it goes on glossy cs like a dream! I never knew that!LOL! I used my brayer a couple of times but hated how it always had a mark on the paper where I brayered. Pam told use to use glossy cs to prevent that line. Love Pam!LOL! Okay anyway back to the card... I brayered on the soft sky and wiped the ink off my embossed image then I sponged the edges w/bayou. I also went and added a few highlights w/my white gel pen. I punched the red butterfly 2x to raise the wings so its 3-d. I used the bayou prints pack and soft sky double stitched grosgrain ribbon under my main image. To finish off my card I added the sentiment and punched w/the ww punch. I also added 3 rhinestones from K & Co. Hope you have a great day!
