CYP Challenge 125 - Embossing

Well, it's Monday again. Time to get your mojo working for another great challenge at Craft Your  Passion. The theme this week is Emboss - wet or dry. I couldn't choose so I did both :) I was excited to use this stunning butterfly digi from one of our sponsors, Cardmadfairy Creations. There were so many cool images to choose from that I had a hard time deciding.

This butterfly was printed on white cardstock and then coloured with my trusty Prismacolor pencils. I went for the brightest ones I had! Love orange and  hot pink together. Once it was fussy cut,  the butterfly was mounted on foam tape to add dimension. The body and head were coloured with a Versamark pen and clear embossed. Two eyelet pins replaced the antennae on the image.

Three layers of paper were added to the card base, alternating black cardstock with a butterfly print from my scrapbox. The top black layer was dry embossed using a dot folder. It was then cut out with a die. Once all of the papers were adhered to the card, vintage black buttons and some clock hands stickers with bling centers balanced the two corners.

Love this image and the bonus is that because it's digital, I can resize it over and over again. I'll be using this one a lot! Can't you just see it small as an embellie? How about different sizes in a cluster?

Now head on over to the Craft Your Passion blog to check out the amazing designs my fellow DTers created. You are sure to feel inspired enough to play in this week's CYP Emboss challenge. Can't wait to see what you create.

Thanks for visiting.

Life is good; so is art.

The coloring on the butterfly is spectacular and the black really shows it off. You achieved great balance by adding those clock hands in the upper left.

I absolutely LOVE this card Bonnie! The colors are stunning, and I especially love the clock hands used as embellishments. This is a piece of art!!

You totally did a better job with this image than I did. I first thought that a butterfly would be easy peasy but I just wasn't able to make it pop. Well done!
