Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #412

 Time for a new sketch at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge! I hope you are not getting tired of seeing the March Stamp of the Month, Winged Masterpiece.  I just love this set!  I went with super simple, for a wedding theme. The black and white just reminds me of a black tie event!  The gorgeous butterfly totally stands on it’s own with no coloring required.  Here is the original sketch design-

In keeping with the sketch, I embossed my top layer.  I kept the bottom layer plain for easy stamping of my sentiment.  My images were stamped in black pigment ink and clear embossed.  Score lines were added along the body of the butterfly. The score lines make it easy to give your butterfly “flight”.  I applied Liquid Glass adhesive along the body.  Almost all of my cards are mailed, so using a super strong adhesive helps them arrive intact!

My card was created with the March Stamp of the Month, Winged Masterpiece.  This set is truly a masterpiece!  You can add this set to a qualifying order for only $5.  VIP members can earn the set for free.  The set can also be purchased as a stand alone item.  The set is only available to order during the month of March.  You can get all the details here.
