PageMaps Challenge ***Edited w/Side Views of Butterfly***

I managed to finish up something scrappy tonite!!! I made this card using the sketch over at PageMaps and well, I followed the sketch almost exactly!!! It is crazy how it worked but as soon as I saw the sketch I knew I needed to use my butterfly stamp and stamp it on a transparency and a piece of patterned paper to create the illusion of the wings flying!!! I hope you can see the transparency from this picture, if not I'll take another in the morning with a side view. This is actually a technique I love to do. If you haven't tried stamping on a transparency to create your own overlays for projects you really should - it is easy and fun but one tip, use StazOn ink to avoid a mess!!!


Thanks for stopping by!!!

Happy Scrappin'!!!


Good morning!!! Here are 2 pics for a better view of the transparency layering of the butterfly!!! As always, thank you for stopping by and happy scrappin'!!!

Just to cover all bases...................

I am not the best scrapper out there. I don't claim to be totally original, I lift from many places and in many forms from color combinations, to product usage, to technique and so forth. I try to be fair to all scrappers out there and mention them when I lift from them - now keep in mind, there are so many people out there scrapping, card making and altering items that naturally more than one person will have similar ideas. When I mention lifting, or casing as some call it, I mean when you intentionally take a design you see and duplicate it exactly or only change up the coloring........KWIM???
