I'm on a Roll!

I must be going card crazy! I have made lets see(yes I made so many I lost count)...About 27 cards since January 1st. I just might beat my yearly card making record within the next 2 months!
Here is my latest card and I have to say my best,
Making this card was fun yet complicated.
I first took a piece of cream colored paper, and stamped it with Hero Arts cg143 horizontal lines in versamark( a clear ink).
I then distressed the edges with Tim Holtz distress ink "Tea dye" took a sponge and rubbed the ink over the stamped lines.
After this I chose another stamp made by Hero Arts (infact all stamps on this card are HA)
cg120 and stamped this with versamark over the distressing and first stamp, and then once again but with a creamy brown chalk ink.
On another peice of paper I stamped the heart winged butterfly f5158 colored it in with copics and cut it out, placed it on the distressed piece raising the wings, then hand drew the butterfly trail.
Next I got a piece of brown paper and stamped the entire piece with the lace backround s5341, placed the distressed piece on the brown with gold ribbon and stamped the sentiment cl380 from the truly appreciated clear set.
Done! But I dont think I could have done this good if I didn't watch a video on youtube made by my friend Linda (aka Oz)on distressing cards; I suggest you click HERE watch her video and subscribe, She also has a pretty cool blog HERE too.
Thanks for Stopping by 8~ )

Oh Han, I was admiring your card and reading about how you created it.. then you made me tear just a little. Thank you sweetie. But don't for a second ever think that you didn't get that beautiful card made totally because YOU have the talent. We all take and grow from each other. Huge hugs, your friend, Oz
