Mint Postcard

Wednesday I shared one of my samples with this week's versatile Splitcoaststampers sketch (drawn by my dear friend Korin).  I loved the sketch so much I whipped up two cards earlier this week - this one uses a soon-to-be-released stamps called Butterfly Postcard from Stampendous.

I stamped the image on kraft card stock using white ink; while it was still wet I covered it in clear embossing powder and then heat set it.  To help it stand out even more from the card stock, I sponged inwards towards the center, layering different shades of brown until I achieved the desired effect.  And those sweet hand-crocheted flowers?  The amazing Janelle Stollfus made them for me!!

Ink: Monlight (VersaMagic); Antique Linen, Brushed Corduroy (Ranger Distress)
