Mini Me: Two Butterflies

Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!

Welcome from Laurie to the first day of June and the first day of our latest challenge:  Mini Me.  So think ATCs, twinchies, inchies, ATC coins - in other words, little things.  I went with an ATC for this using one of the stamps from the ATC Text Set #1 and two of the stamps from the Butterfly Set, all found at Lost Coast Designs.

The background is a piece of a larger gel print that I had made awhile ago using Distress Oxide inks in oranges and pinks and a stencil.  I stamped the Asian text with black ink onto the front, trimmed it to ATC size, and edged it with black marker.  

The butterflies were stamped onto another piece of a different gel print that was mainly yellow Distress Oxide ink with some red added in here and there.  I stamped the two different butterflies with black ink
and fussy cut them out.  I glued them to the ATC front as shown.  As a little embellishment, I made a small wax seal with a flower motif and once set, I highlighted the raised portions with some gold wax.

We are excited to see what mini masterpieces you can create for this challenge.  Post them here on the Portal before the 15th for a chance to win some free stamps!
