Seraphim Butterfly

 Hello.  Today I created a card from a background I had sitting on my desk. I had seen someone do some light gray stamping to fill in a background so I gave it a try and made a few backgrounds with different texture and script stamps I have.

This card started by stamping the doily image in the Be Fearless kit from Unity Stamp Co. It is no longer available but Doily Hugs and Wishes would give a similar look. I used Flannel ink from Simon Says Stamp.  I trimmed this down to 4 1/8” x 5 3/8”. I then embossed it with a script embossing folder and swiped the Flannel ink over the raised letters and the edges and matted it with a black A2 panel. The butterfly is Seraphim Wings also from Unity Stamp Co. I stamped it on a 3” square and matted it with a black 3 1/8” square. I used the flannel ink on the edges of this as well. 

Here is a closeup at the background texture.

Wild About You

 I had some fun playing with some unused products before I put them away. I bought this die just to use with my background stamp I’ve had forever. 

The background stamp is Hey Cool Cats from Unity Stamp Co.  This fun die is CZ Designs Wild About You from Simon Says Stamp. I ink blended a panel of Bristol Smooth card stock with the Pawsitively Saturated ink in Clay. I then stamped the background in Terracotta. I inked a scrap of white card stock with Brick and used the Wild About You to die cut it. I cut a scrap of card stock inked in Clay for the hear inset. I matted the background and the words with black and finished the card with some black string and foam tape.
