An Impulse To Soar

This week I have used the FLOWER MARKET plate from Artistic Outpost to create my dimensional card.
My background has been created using the Tim Holtz Harlequin layering stencil and Faded Jeans Distress Ink. I then dried the ink and rubbed over my card with an anti static bag, stamped the butterflies with VersaMark Ink and then embossed with white embossing powder.
I blended Broken China Distress Ink over the embossed design, however, I used an ink blending tool that I had previously used green ink with and then applied the Broken China so this gave my project a turquoise tint, a happy accident! I die cut a circle and attached to the bottom left of my card and again used the Harlequin stencil to add detail.
I added dimension to each butterfly along with a pen nib for added interest and dimension.
The sentiment, which I love, is from the QUOTE and QUOTABLES plate.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x
