Overstamped Butterfly Card

Inspired by a card done by Heather Tedford, I chose butterflies to try the overstamping technique then added some embossing for contrast.

The background was done by sponging a light shade of blue, then I stamped the butterflies in two colors but you can barely see the lighter blue ones in the photo. White embossing powder added shine to the leaves.

It's a rare occasion that I make a single card from a design, but this is going to be a one of a kind.  I don't have graduated shades of the same colors to accomplish what I wanted and will have to wait until my next trip to the LSS to pick up some ink pads.
