Easel Card

This easel card uses a frame stamp from Joanna Sheen (that i've had for ages, but for some reason never used!) for the main image. The frame has been embossed using Sheena Douglass 'Wow' embossing powders in black. The flower is also a Joanna Sheen stamp from one of  the Jane Netley Meyhew stamp ranges, which I stamped with black soot Distress ink and coloured with ProMarkers. I've found that Black Soot Distess ink works really well with ProMarkers and the image can be coloured staright away with no bleeding of the distress ink.

The inside edge of the frame has also been colured with ProMarkers, but I inked the outer edge and the edge of the sentiment with Big N Juicy waterfall ink.

The backing paper is from MSC Tattered lace CD, which I added glitter to the detail at the bottom. The butterflies were stamped onto the same BP and embossed with white embossing powder.

Challenges covered:
Ellephantastic challenges - Blue
Oldie but a goodie challenge - add a butterfly
Just inspirational challenges  - a shaped card
