Sending You Encouragement

I made this set of cards using the 
Garden Collage stamp set from Stampin' Up.
It's one of my favorites that I've come back to several times.
I colored the stamped images with my 
Scholar Prismacolor pencils and blended them with baby oil.
The image is die cut with the Postage Stamp (Spellbinders) nestabilities and matted on blue (or pink) cardstock. 
The white background is embossed in 
Script (The Paper Studio) and a sentiment from 
Chalkboard Sentiments (Anna Griffin) added to the side.
Here's a close up of my favorite feature: 
The 3D Butterfly
Featured on each card by stamping the image twice;
 cutting one out and layering it over the other.

That is a great stamp and I love the dimension you gave to the butterfly, pretty coloring of it too and great embossing of the background!

This is a gorgeous card set. I love how the same image looks entirely different by simply changing the color-combo. Thanks so much for playing along with "Creative With Stamps" Butterfly Challenge :-)
