Aga *Day 5*

I just had to end our week of inspiration with Aga with another of her beautiful butterfly cards. Thanks so much, Aga, for playing along this week. Remember, you can always see more of Aga's work on her BLOG and PHOTOSTREAM.
Here's my take: The butterflies (Hero Arts CL383) were colored with Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Stamper's Big Brush Markers after being stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. The green background was created by applying Distress Stains (Peeled Paint, Wild Honey, and Vintage Photo) to my craft sheet. I pressed the paper into the ink. Once dry, I stamped this background with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink (Hero Arts CG197). Sentiment by Hero Arts (CL487).

Thanks so much for your visits this week! Wish me luck as I am moving my craft room to a new room in the house this weekend/week. I'm very excited to gain more space and organization (and SOOO thankful that my mom, dad, and hubby can help)! Maybe I'll have to give you a video tour when it is finished... ;) See you tomorrow with a Purple Onion Designs card.

Just beautiful! Love both of the cards. I especially love those butterflies. I could see rhinestones in the dots on them... Going to have to add that stamp to my list of wants! No make that "gotta haves"!! Thanks for all of the inspiration from you and Aga this week. Good luck on moving your artroom - been there - done that- it's work but of so worth it! Marita S.
