Had another play with Tim Holtz butterfly stamps to make a card for Crafty Cardmakers challenge which is "flutterbies" butterflies.Stamped and embossed the background stamp with clear powder,overstamped with the net stamp and then ironed off the embossing. Hero art flowers coloured with DI inks,spritzed with water and stamped, I like the water colour effect that it gives. Butterflies are coloured with Art from the Heart pigment powders and have a lovely sheen to them which doesnt show up on here.  The card needs something at the bottom corner but I will add a sentiment when I  use the card.  Most times now I try not to add sentiments so I can add the appropriate one when I decide what or who the card is for.Think this card will also fit for
Simon says stamp and show - anything goes
Make it Monday - anything goes
