Thursdays with Lindsay

Good Morning! It's Thursday already! Where has the week gone?

It's time to share a card made with a Lindsay's Stamp Stuff digi-stamp. I am so happy with this card!


I just love this butterfly. So beautiful. Lindsay made it so easy, too. With all the detail in black, that all prints out when you print the digi-image. All I had to do was add a bit of color using Prismacolor Markers Spanish Orange and Yellow Orange. I printed it twice. The first printing is on the oval and the second one I cut out and placed over the first with pop dots in the center. The wings are bent up slightly. I tried to take a picture of it but I just couldn't get a very good angle.

I created my own "metal" card stock, too. I cut out a piece of black card stock and embossed it heavily with copper embossing powder. I love this technique! Then with another kind of embossing, I added texture with the floral Cuttlebug folder.

Finally I used a quote from Quote Garden, I love this quote.

Please visit Lindsay and the rest of the Design Team. Someone has a FREE image for you! And tomorrow is the last day of the July sale, for every $5 you spend you get a free image.

Thanks for stopping by today.
