When I saw these Steampunk Butterfly stamps from Chocolate Baroque I just knew that a set had my name on it! This card is made using the unusual rose which I love, a corner stamp and also another one which has been used on the background (a fragment reminscent of a rose window). The main image coloured with Coloursoft pencils was stamped twice so that I could layer up the flowers and leaf; the background was a piece of watercolour paper inked with Distress stains and Adirondack ink, overstamped with the fragment and silver mica powder brushed on before the ink dried. Pewter WOW embossing powder was used on the rose and on the corners. The main image and the metallic effect piece were cut using Stampin' Up framelits dies (Sizzix). A Tim Holtz embossing folder was used to produce the metallic piece which was a scrap of card with aluminium adhesive tape applied (bought from the DIY store).
It has been raining relentlessly here all day - and probably most of last night too, so I made the weather an excuse not to go out but stayed in to play with my new stamps. Much more fun!!
