I am a new empty nester, and I love to make cards and ATCs. I am always looking for ways to use the product I have, to learn new techniques and ways to do things, and most of all, to have fun with the creating of my art.

.. And Yet More Distress......
Yet another Keeping in Touch card for the Hero Arts August challenge For this card, I used Kraft cardstock as the base. I stamped in white with the SU retired stamp, Victorian Lace, which covered the card front. While that was drying, I stamped the butterfly (Quietfire Designs) in Broken China distress ink on some patterned paper, and cut out. Once the white ink was dry, I over stamped the card front with Worn Lipstick Distress ink for the flowers ( Hero Arts Watercolor Petals). I added the sentiment, also Hero Arts, in Victorian Velvet. The card needed just a hint more colour, so I edged the whole card front in Victorian Velvet. I foam mounted the butterfly to the card. I thought of adding more, but felt it would just detract from the subtle background.
