Sunday night inspiration

I wanted to join in on the fun over at Hero Arts so I came up with this card:


I just got this stamp from Memories Live On a few days ago and I LOVE it!
Jennifer McGuire used it at CHA for a make & take and I have wanted it ever since.

Stamps: F5158 Heart Winged Butterfly
Ink: Tuxedo Black Memento, Copic Marker Black
Paper: SEI Mimosa, Stampin' Up Whisper White
Pearls: Kaiser Scrapbook

Isn't the SEI Mimosa paper just beautiful? It has some shimmer to it too. When I stamped the butterfly on the SEI Mimose "Chartreuse" paper, the glossy part of the paper cause the ink to "puddle" so I had to heat set it. I went over the lighter part of the ink with my Copic Black marker to darken the butterfly. I think it looks prettier all black.

Here's another quick card I came up with for the store:



Stamps: Imaginisce Twitterpated Collection Snag 'em Acrylic Stamp "Foxy"
Ink: Rich Cocoa Memento, Copic Markers (E29, E33, E00)
Paper: Three Bugs in a Rug - Butterfly Kisses "Lady Bug" and "Dragonfly"

Come back later for Monday's fun day...
