Floral Silhouettes

We have a new stamp set this month from Creative Expressions, Floral Silhouette.
I created a tag, colouring the background with fired brick Distress Ink and flicking with water to add blotches to the backdrop.
I stamped the floral swirl with Versamark Ink and then sprinkled with white embossing powder. I then added a shadow stamping the same image with fired brick Distress Ink, giving a tone on tone effect.
The butterflies were added to give dimension and I also added Western Blue Polished Silk Glitter to the wings for further interest.
Pen nibs have been added to the bodies of the butterflies to add a little more interest and dimension along with some Remnants Rubs Numbers from Tim Holtz.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x
