Last night over at the Hero Arts Group on Flickr Barb hosted the 100th Scramble in the group. Her theme was to use your all time favourite Hero Arts image stamp as well as your all time Hero Arts sentiment set.
As so many of my Hero Arts stamps are my favourites I had a hard time picking just one. I had whittled my choice down to two different stamps and even though my hubby didn't see which stamps I was dithering over, he said "it's got to be butterflies" so that's how I picked between the two! The butterfly I used is from the Antique Engravings set and has been inked up over and over again as I love it so much.
Stamp - Antique Engravings (Hero Arts)
I started by embossing and sanding the background. Then after stamping and cutting out the butterflies, I coloured them with Promarkers and added touches of diamond distress stickles to the smaller white dots on the wings.

Then I added some thread for the antennae and stuck the butterflies on the main panel using foam pads. After adding the sentiment, again on foam pads, I used glossy accents to adhere the gorgeous green sequins that my friend Trinh sent me - thanks again Trinh:)
Some ladies manage to make two or even three cards during the Scrambles but I inevitably only manage one and literally end up scrambling to get the card made and uploaded in time. So please just pretend you don't see the wonky card, places I missed colouring and blobs of glossy accents;) Even though it's a mad scramble it is so much fun. If you'd like to join in on a Scramble you'll find the timetable here.
I'm submitting this card into the Die Cut Divas Anything Goes Challenge. Happy stamping and enjoy your Sunday:)
