Altering intentions

I rarely ever do a card challenge mostly cuz I'm lazy because I rarely have time BUT there was one posted a while back ago about using a stamp different that it's original intent AND I actually had an idea. Embrace life is my favorite stamp set, I know I've said that before but really all my sets are my favorite, so I decided to use the flower from it and make a butterfly. I think it came out perfectly which is amazing in itself because my ideas don't translate as well when I actually do it.

Recipe: Stamp Set: Embrace Life Cardstock: Certainly Celery, Barely Banana, and Naturals White Ink: Certainly Celery Accessories: White Gel Pen, Blender Pens, Barely Banana Marker, Silver Cord, Dimensionals, and Beads.

Carmen, I really like this card. The butterfly kinda looks surreal. It definatley works. Thanks for sharing.

What a great idea! I have never seen the flower used like that! BTW, Embrace Life is one of my favorites too--along with all the rest of the stamps. :) TFS
