Spring Butterfly

I had a busy weekend and then a workshop last night so I haven't got around to posting much lately. This is one of the cards that everyone made at the workshop last night. I kept it fairly simple since a large group was making the card. But since they were all experienced stampers and like to try different techniques, we did the kissing or faux shaving cream technique on the butterfly.My sample here shows the butterfly with the kissing technique. Simply ink your stamp in the lightest color, in this case Amethyst, then ink your wheel in a darker ink - I used Lovely Lilac, roll the wheel right over your inked stamp to create the "kissed" image, or for a marbled looking image, twist as you roll, this will create the faux shaving cream effect. (I forgot to take a pic of that...I'll try to do that later and add it)

Stamps: Simple Friendship, Sincere Salutations & Always in Bloom wheel
Card stock: Almost Amethyst, Pink Pirouette, Certainly Celery and Tea Party DP
Ink: Almost Amethyst, Pink Pirouette & Lovely Lilac
Accessories: Simple Flower Embosslit, Celery ribbon (SAB)& SS brads

I must say that my hostesses last night really spoiled included! They served up a wonderful meal starting with creamy chicken knoki soup topped with bacon, followed by Chicken Marsala over pasta. For desert they made delicious chocolate crepes with strawberry sauce, drizzled in chocolate. I'm telling mouth is watering just thinking about it! Plus they made the most adorable file folders as a party favor for everyone. (I'll take a pic and post later.) It was awesome! Thanks again Minnie & rock!!!
