Craft's Meow September Challenge!

Sending Butterfly Kisses!
What a terrific way to celebrate saying goodbye to summer!
Cooler weather is on its' way!
 
Techniques abound over at Craft's Meow this week!
Check out all of the DT's great tips on how to ink up your projects!
 
I used the blending ink colors to mimic water colors and also used the metallic look for my background.
 
Using my favorite little stamp,
"Butterfly Kisses"
I heat embossed her over a misted green/blue background, and then highlighted her delightful little wings with some vibrant color!
The background is embossed with
Spellbinders'
M-Bossabilities, "Flora".
I inked it in Momento, Gold and Copper, and then rubbed on some
Copper metal Rub-n-Buff.
It really shines!
 
My little butterflies were stamped and fussy cut to pop off the card!
 
 
This card says so long Summer and welcome Fall !
