Sending You Get Well Wishes - AHSC #412

I love this stamp set from CTMH and just needed to create a card. The Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #412 was perfect for my butterfly.  

Aside from coloring more time was spent on getting a good full print of all the detail.  Stamping with Versa Mark you can't really see whether it's covering all the detail until you shake on the  embossing powder to see some detail missing. Not sure whether this is a defect in the stamp or my stamping.  Misti or a brush for even pressure, nothing worked.   

After several attempts, and being persistent, I stamped it again (3 times using the Misti) and Memento "Black" ink so I could clearly see all the detail, let it dry and then stamped with Versa Mark.  When the heat embossing was completed if embossing powder was lacking it didn't show because of the black stamping.  

Usually I'll pick out my paper before coloring my image for a closer match of colors but had decided I would use a white background with a black strip.  So picked up my Sketch brush pens and completed the coloring of the butterfly and then fussy-cut.  Unintentionally I put it down on the plaid that was sitting on my desk from Daisy Meadows paperpack which I had just used on a previous card... it made me happy. 

Now, I wasn't undecided of the solid black strip... so went to my border dies and found a die that wasn't solid and decided to tone down the black and cut one in the Peacock color that was in the plaid and another cut in yellow... made me happier.  Stamped the sentiment on white cardstock, layered with peacock, and also layered my plaid with peacock and assembled on my card base.  And unusual for me; no thin 3D foam tape used and still pleased with the demension.
