Flutter By Wednesday #180 - Open Challenge

Welcome to Flutter By Wednesday!    This week we have an open challenge - so anything goes as long as you include a butterfly, fairy or an angel!  Also, this week we welcome Amanda to the Flutter By team!  Check out Amanda's blog - you won't be disappointed.  AND we have an awesome guest designer this week - Jessica Deidrich of the Whimsical Butterfly!  When you complete your new project with a butterfly, fairy or an angel, link it directly to InLinkz on the Flutter By Wednesday blog.
Now on to my cards - I got some new toys yesterday and had to try them out right away.  These cards were made with a Hero Arts A2 sized collage image and then dry embossed with a companion Sizzix embossing folder.  I used All Night Media fall variegated dye ink over the entire image and stamped it onto white card stock.  Then I lined it up in the embossing folder and ran it through my Big Shot.  The large butterfly, Friend sentiment and the flowers are embossed - it is hard to see the raised areas in the photo.  I then mounted it onto blue cardstock.

The next card I made is a one layer card.  I stamped the image with Memento ink directly onto the card front and colored in the butterfly and flowers with Copic markers.  After I colored the image I ran it through with the companion embossing folder. 
These were really quick cards to make and fun too!
Thanks for coming by!
