You are the best

Hi everyone! It is time for a new challenge at AAA Card Challenges #92 - Resist Technique. 


I am so excited to be joining these talented and supportive ladies as part of the AAA Cards design team!!

I started my card by stamping the butterflies with Versamark on watercolor cardstock and heat embossing them with clear powder. Then I used Zig Clean color markers to scribble over the embossing and used a spray bottle to mist the cardstock and spread the ink out with a brush. The embossing resisted the color and showed through. Taking a separate piece of white cardstock, I die cut the square out and layered it on top of the butterflies.
For the sentiment, I white embossed the saying on some black cardstock, trimmed it out and layered it on top of the square cutout. The butterfly was die cut and then colored it with my Zig Clean color marker and adhered to the sentiment. I put some tiny glue dots behind the wings to make them pop up and added glossy accents to the top.

I hope that you play along with us at AAA Cards and don't forget to check out the other ladies' inspiration pieces. They are really beautiful!
