Masked butterfly flowers

Last year I took a class in Raleigh by the lovely Michelle Zindorf, beginning and advanced brayering. In that class she showed us also how to mask with clear embossing powder. I love the technique and had forgotten about it until I started working with the butterfly flower stamp. The first thing I did was stamp the image in each corner with versamark on manilla paper. I embossed in clear and then used my copics to color the image in. After coloring I used my versamark pen and colored over my copic coloring and embossed in clear again. Then I stamped the large script stamp in shabby shutter over the image and distressed it with the same color over top. The butterfly and dragonfly were stamped in black again and cut out and colored with copics. 

I have another card to post on Friday, hope everyone is having a great day!
