07.12.19…..It’s hard to believe the weekend is almost here!  Hope you are able to squeeze in a little time these next few days to do something creative!  That being said, my “something creative”  was inspired by this week’s Global Design Project Color Challenge (#GDP197).  I also had not used my Butterfly Gala stamp set in awhile, and I thought it would be just perfect for this project!

I started with a piece of Whisper White Cardstock, and embossed it with the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder.  After I tore one edge, I then used my Seaside Spray Stampin’ Write Marker to add some speckling.  (For create the speckling, I used the thick end of the marker and “flicked” it against the marker cap.)  After I added a strip of Woven Threads Designer Series Paper, I layered it with a piece of Whisper White Cardstock, and used a few Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the entire panel to a Whisper White Thick Cardstock base.  For some extra texture, I used Vellum Cardstock. along with one of the Layering Circle Dies, then embossed it with the Eyelet Lace Embossing Folder.

The butterflies (from the Butterly Gala stamp set) were heat-embossed on Whisper White Cardstock, using Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and my Versamark Pad.  After I punched them out with the Butterfly Duet Punch, I used my Aqua Painter (along with Seaside Spray, Terracotta Tile, and Pear Pizzazz) to color them, and then popped them up with a few Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The sentiment (from the Well Said stamp set) was also heat-embossed on Whisper White Cardstock, and popped up with a few more Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Tucked underneath are a few thin strands of Whisper White Baker’s Twine.  For those extra little details, I sprinkled on a couple of gold Metallic Pearls, and a few Woven Thread Sequins.
