DYSU Challenge #80

Good Morning All,
Time for our new challenge over at Do You Stack Up? and this week our theme is Cool Colours.........

We have three great sponsors this week

Copic Marker Scrapbooking  6 Copic Ciao Markers (North/South America), Martha Stewart punch (rest of the world)

The Stamping Boutique - Winner's choice of 3 digis

Scrappers Delights - $5 Gift Certificate

For my card this week I have used just stamps, inks and embossing powder - not a Promarker in sight!!! I created a faux batik background by stamping with Versamark, embossing with clear powder and then removing the embossing after I had inked the paper. The butterflies were stamped in black first and then I over-stamped in green.  I also stamped one of the butterflies onto pink paper and decoupaged it. I really enjoyed making this card - it's been a long time since I used just stamping techniques on a card.

Distress Inks - Tumbled Glass and Shabby Shutters
Versafine - Black
Clear embossing powder
Hero Arts stamp - "Old French Writing"
Butterfly Kisses stamp - words from "Art Collage"
EK Success stamp - "Patterned Butterfly Bugs"
Household iron and copy paper

Don't forget to take a look at the rest of the Teams' wonderful Cool Colour creations over on the DYSU Challenge blog and I really hope you will join in this fun challenge.  Thank you so much for looking. I shall be back later with my Digi Doodle Shop Challenges make.
