Blue Silk Moth

Welcome to you all - I am so glad you call by and visit with me.
I received some new stamps from the Layers of Color new releases this week and I could not wait to go and get them inky, and this is the result!!


I was colour inspired by this photo for the inspiration challenge over at 


I mulled it over overnight, and decided to sponge the background with the Tsukineko Kaleidacolor Blue Breeze colours, using the Versamark resist technique. The stamp I used for this is from the Layers of Color Fleur stamp set.

I then stamped the Silk Moth directly onto the card with Tsukineko Brilliance Mediterranean Blue, and embossed using Paua embossing powder.


This is a clear powder with pink and blue highlights in it.



I then stamped the image onto some pale blue velum using versamark ink and the Blue Breeze pad, and again embossed using the paua powder.


I 'fussy cut' it, ready to layer it over the image on the card, and added Ice Blue rhinestones.

I stamped the sentiment from the Artful Endearments stamp set, again using the Blue Breeze inks, lining the letters up over the changes of colour on the pad.


I adhered the cut out butterfly with vellum adhesive and the card was complete.

I am linking this to :

Thank you for calling by - may your day be blessed.
