To help inspire you here is my sample Butterfly Because:

Side View:

The main panel is a reverse image stamp. I stamped the text first on vanilla card stock, inked the edges, then clear embossed the image. Then I blended with distress inks using my lightest colors first and did a final blend with my watercolor brush.

Thinking of spring - but we are expecting more snow today!

Happy Creating!

Ink - Coffee Archival; Old Paper, peeled paint, fired brick, aged mahogany distress inks (Ranger)

The next step is to burn these files onto the appropriate medium CD or LARAMIE. For this, you’ll need authoring software like Nero Burning ROM. A CD or LARAMIE DVD writer is required to burn CDs or LARAMIE DVD COLLECTION.
