PDCC41-2cards

Happy Tuesday!!I made two cards for The Play Date Cafe PDCC41. Also enter this for Simon Says Stamp and show: Things with wings

First one using my favorite, hero Arts Dogwood stamp.
I stamp Dogwood with watermark ink and using white embossing powder. Sponge Wild Honey distress ink all over the image. Wipe the access with baby wipe. Stamp the sentiment with Wild Honey as well. Punch butterflies out of red cardstock and adhere on card. Punch edge. Easy~ Breeze~
Close up to see the white embossed Dogwood.

Second one,Die cut circle from white cardstock. Stamp the swirls with watermark ink and using clear embossing powder. Rub Wild Honey Distress ink heavily on to do resist. Adhere on die-cut red circle and adhere on card base. Trim strips, stamp sentiment with Wild Honey. Snip the two ends and Pop off with foam type on a piece of red strip adhered on card base.

For the butterfly. I stamp it with watermark ink on red CS and using clear embossing powder. Color with clear start Gelly Roll pen and pop off on card front with foam tape. Add gems.
