The colors didn't come out too well on this photo.
This is a card I made for a good friend of mine.
I used the Stylized flowers Cuttlebug embossing folder for the background.
Then, I used a brass stencil and embossing paste to make the butterfly and colored it with chalks.
It takes a little longer to do this technique as you have to allow the embossing paste to dry before you can move on with the card....but it's so much fun!
I have been playing more and more with my stencils and paste since getting a card from another stamper. I had just forgotten about doing this.....
