An Inky Session

 Good morning. Hope you are all keeping well and those not I wish well soon.
Today I would like to share a card I made just for the fun of it :o)
With some of my birthday money I treated myself to some Stampendous stamps that I';ve had mny eye on for a while - this Butterfly Post is one of them - I just love it!
I started by inking a piece of linen cardstock with Dusty Concorde and Broken China Distress Inks and then overstamped the image and heat embossed it with Cosmic Shimmer EP

I mat and layered this onto another piece of cardstock inked with the same Distress Inks and then added a mix of Embossing Powders and Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Jewels along the bottom and heat embossed as per the 'Encrsuted Jewel' technique
Sentiment - Creative Expressions
This also used:
Spellbinders M Bossabilities - 'Whimsy'

I really enjoyed making this card and I hope you like it too :o)

What a totally gorgeous card I love the stamp and the colours you've used are perfect for it. Great distressing on the dry embossing and I really like the encrusted jewel look at the bottom too.
