Here is the card I promised made with the Hello stamp from the TPC clear set of greetings (Shown earlier). We have used Broken China and Spicy Marmalade Distress Inks with the Tim Holtz Blending Tool onto water colour paper.  The image from Crafty Individuals has been stamped twice along the bottom and white heat embossed.  I cut off the butterfly from the rest of the stamp to prevent it from showing up twice in the same location.  This way you can also add more butterflies to your final image wherever you want to place them.  We made a paint from Rangers' white Opal Pearls and water and lightly brushed over the surface of the card.  Next, we spritzed the entire front panel with some Perfect Pearls and water in a Mini-Mister.  This technique really creates a Pearlized finish on the card face. We tore off the top edge of the cardstock and actually used it inside.  The Hello has been stamped in the Rangers' Stream Ink and the Nestabilities shape behind the Hello is Labels #4.  The gold dragonfly brad is just a fun touch for any floral card.

See you next week,  Happy Stamping!
