Today is my husbands birthday and this is the card I made him. He is a stamp collector - worldwide - meaning he has stamps from all over the world. The ones he likes the best are the bright, colorful ones and those are often also nature themed. I started with a piece of watercolor paper and die cut it with the Sizzix Tim Holtz Postage Stamp Frame. I taped off the edges so they would stay white. I then stamped the flowers from the new PaperArtsy Kay Carley set EKC06... I stamped the larger flower first, masked it off and stamped the smaller flower 3 times - and they're all embossed with powder. The flowers are colored using Distress Inks and a waterbrush and then I added Distress Ink around them using a mini blending tool. The butterfly is a very old stamp, stamped with Archival Jet Black, colored with Distress Inks and cut out. I used a little printers set to stamp the "denomination", .61 - yes, he turned 61 today - and to stamp the "country", which I made up - yes, my husband's name is Chuck. The printers set had gotten spilled at one time and somehow I could only find one capital C in the box so I lined up everything except the beginning C, stamped and then did just the C for the beginning and as you can tell I didn't get it lined up. I'm declaring this "postaage stamp" must be an error and therefore worth much more than one with no mistakes. LOL Finally I added a little bit of Gl. Clear Wink of Stella pen to the centers of the flowers and on the butterfly. Hopefully he will like the card!!!!
