Barb: Retired!!

This card was designed for a former co-worker who will retire in June. It also meets the criteria for sewmanychallenges:3 embellishments or techniques plus a charm.  This card was made in our stamp club taught by my daughter; Marcia.  Techniques used:  First we stamped white cardstock with the butterflies, then I colored part of the wing and body with a white crayon, then used 3 ink colors and dabbed the inks on the paper over the the butterflies randomly. (The white crayon will resist the ink.) Next I used Close to My Heart stickles to enhance the head and dots on the wing to give it some sparkle.  This cardstock was mounted on green cardstock and tied with a brown ribbon.

Recipe: White crayon, for resist technique-crayola
               Stamp, paper, stickles all Close To My Heart
               Ribbon and crystals: Michael's
               Charm: from a local gift store.
