Less is More Week 16

The challenge at Less is More  this week is Butterflies.
Yippee!
A nice easy challenge or so I thought.
I was determined to use the Patchwork butterfly stamp from Chocolate Baroque as it is so gorgeous!
For my first attempt I used Versamark, Black EP and Promarkers, but didn't realise that the pens reacted with the embossing powder! I had black smudges appearing everywhere.
So I stamped and embossed and used some Shimmer paints that were free with a mag recently - much better!

Thanks for looking
 
Sandra

Sorry about the shadow , it's quite sunny this evening!

BTW, I posted a tutorial on my blog for how to take photos of your cards indoors and/or at night, that might be helpful to you.
