Thumping and embossing

Hello there, so glad you dropped by

I loved making this card for a dear friend of mine.  Embossing on vellum and then colouring it on the reverse side looks really good to me.  I also used the thumping method for the butterflies, stamping in one colour and then thumping (gently tapping randomly with a marker) with another colour. Tried to make sure it was done with current materials but didn't quite make it.  

The materials used are:
Ink: So saffron, VersaMark
Markers: So saffron, Wild wasabi
Card stock: So saffron, Whisper white, Wild wasabi
Stamps: Butterfly basics, Papillon potpourri, Something lacy
Framelits: Apothecary accents
Punches: Bitty butterfly, Elegant butterfly
Ribbon: taffeta so saffron (retired) nearly made one with no retired items
Accessories: Basic pearls, Essentials piercing template, White embossing powder, White vellum

Embossing powder: White

Will be back again soon with more cards

Love Annette x
