Autumn Butterflies

Happy Wednesday!! It's time for more Heartfelt Creations inspiration.

 I have a real 'thing' for butterflies, so today I have used the butterflies from both the Summer's Day and Sunflower Stems sets. Really, they are stunning butterflies.

I stamped both butterflies onto the Classic Sunflower Collection Paper and heat embossed it using Antique Gold Embossing powder. Really, I used this embossing powder everywhere I reasonably could because I love the look. It's so rich and warm - perfect for Fall.

I coloured both butterflies using Distress Ink Markers. They blended fairly nicely on the pattern paper. I really like the imperfect, texturized look colouring on this pattern paper gives an image. It's something I don't think I could achieve using a texture image stamp because the pattern and colour effect is just so incredibly subtle when using pattern paper.

The Heartfelt Creations design team was asked to use chipboard shapes from Creative Embellishments. Here, I've used the sentiment 'Autumn' that is included in the Autumn Leaves set. I used versamark and the same embossing powder as on the rest of the card. It is quite rich looking.

I need to do more 9"x4" cards. I'm always happy with the results, and it's a nice change from the 6" square cards I normally do.

Do check out the projects on the Heartfelt Creations blog for some additional gorgeous inspiration on this lovely fall day!
