The theme for this month’s blog highlight is LOVE, a very broad category. I hadn’t inked up the You Move Me stamps much, so I pulled them out, just because I love this sentiment. I have also rediscovered my love for Island Indigo, so I just had to use it.

I started with Whisper White cardstock and stamped the inner butterfly images from the stamp set. I wanted to see what these would look like if I just stamped the negatives. So cool, right? I heat embossed them with Clear embossing powder, then used my Sponge Brayer to sponge on Island Indigo, Tempting Turquoise, Lemon-Lime Twist, and Tangerine Tango. I ended up loving this color combo! I wiped off the ink that accumulated on the embossing with a dry baby wipe.

I embossed “my heart” with Copper embossing powder, because I love Copper with Island Indigo. Then I stamped “FLUTTERS” first in Island Indigo, and then stamped on top of that with Versamark. Then I sprinkled Copper embossing powder on some of the image but not all of it, because I wanted the bottom part to be Island Indigo, so I would have a progression of Copper to Island Indigo. I stamped the bottom part of the sentiment in Island Indigo. I put the sentiment pieces up on Dimensionals, then finished off the card with Clear Faceted Gems.
