Beautiful Butterflies in the Newest Limited Edition Set from Impression Obsession

A new month means it's time for a new limited edition stamp set from Impression ObsessionThis month's set is lovely for spring and summer, featuring sweet butterfly and floral images. Today, I have a simple inked and heat embossed card idea featuring the stamps from this pretty new stamp set.

To create this card, start with simple heat embossing with the image of your choice. I wanted to add an inky ombre background to the cluster of butterflies I stamped, so I used Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks in shades of pink, orange, and yellow. Distress Oxide Inks interact with water, so after blending colors, I splattered just a bit of water across the card to create some water spots. A little bit of matting on a bright colored card base finished off this simple card idea. Any of the images in this stamp set would look lovely like this - and for my "I-hate-to-color" peeps. . . .there's no coloring required with this idea! ;)

Oh my goodness the blending is beautiful. I'm not a color hater I am apparently a perfectly inept colorist. Tee hee, just doesn't ever translate from my head to paper. Envious though, very envious.
