Card with Envelope

Here is a card with a matching envelope I made this afternoon with the Gina K. Designs Vine & Butterflies stamp set. It is one of my favorites.


I have always been a lover of daisies and butterflies so it was a "given" that I would want to own this set. I stamped the images with Obsibian Amalgam ink from Gina K. Designs and for the card I colored it with Prismacolors and Gamsol except for some brushing of ink around the edges. This was layered to white and then to a base card of Dusty Rose. The last thing added was some gems that in real life pick up lots of colors from it's surroundings....sort of irridescent. The envelope was a marbled pink and white so I chose to use that one to stamp another black outlined daisy on to tie the envelope and card together.

Thanks for visiting me on this cloudy and dreary day. I hope all is well with you. We are still fine here.

Take care and God bless,
Verna

Very pretty card Verna and hw great to make a matching envelope, I need to do that, heck I am lucky if I even finish the insides, my heart just hasn't been into much lately, maybe once all this rain passes I can get out in the sunshine at least.
