Dream... a butterfly card

I had started this card just before I left on vacation and it had been sitting here staring me in the face everytime I walked by it. All it needed was to be glued onto a base and VOILA, it was done. I love this technique. You just stamp the butterfly image onto White CS with Staz-on or Archival ink, color it in with markers, color over the entire image with an embossing pen and heat emboss with clear embossing powder. It seals in the colors and makes it really pop! I stamped the butterfly image onto Sweet Leaf B&T. And then I cut the butterfly out (minus it's antenae) and glued it onto the B&T, basically paper-piecing it.

What I used (all CTMH unless otherwise noted):
Emporium B&T
Celebrate Life SS
Inspiration SS
Colonial White and Vineyard Berry CS
Black Staz-On ink
Chocolate ink
Vineyard Berry, Twilight and Sweet Leaf markers
Clear embossing powder
Embossing pen
White Daisy Mini-medley ribbon slide
Vineyard Berry grosgrain from Creative Basics Emporium set
Scalloped rectangle Nestabilities (Spellbinders)
Make-up sponge
