Hi there, Diane with you today!

I have a few fun products I used to share with you today!
First, I started with a Memory Box Texture Splatter stencil,
using a Gold metallic ink and TH Distress ink Broken China.
I applied the ink with the Mini Ink Blending Tool .

I got even more creative by applying VersaMark to
Our Daily Bread butterfly branch from the Faith  stamp set,
then embossing with Frantage Embossing Powder.
The color I used was Shabby Blue, 4 colors come in the set.
A couple of quick tips are to use the Anti Static Bag
on your card stock before applying the VersaMark.
This helps to keep the embossing powder to stick only where you want it.
Also, in using Frantage, it is best to heat from beneath your stamped image.

I do have a matching die for this stamp, and I used it.
Though not in store right now, Beverly can order it for you.

I next cut an oval to mount my butterflies on using
Spellbinders Floral Ovals.
I popped both the butterflies and the oval with

I guess, I was so much into the embossing, that I also
used Sparkle N Sprinkle Gold Detail  fine embossing powder
for the sentiment, which is from JustRite Hope and Love stamp set!

This was a very easy card to make.
I think it took me longer to put all the supplies away,
then the actual card!

Thank you for visiting with me today!

Oh, how pretty! Very nice effect with the Frantage embossing and all the flecks and speckles. Love the white against the blue and the fresh, clean look.
