Let's Fly: Butterfly Square

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!

Hello again from Laurie with another project for our month long "Let's Fly" challenge going on here on the Portal.  We hope you have been busy making your "flying" creations and sharing them here on the Portal.

For this card, I used the Ledger Background stamp from Lost Coast Designs and the Butterfly Square stamp from Carmen's Veranda.  Be sure to check out the large collection of square stamps at Carmen's Veranda - there are some really unusual and beautiful ones!

The background for this was created by piecing together one inch squares of a decorative background paper to create a mosaic collage.  I stamped this with black ink using the Ledger background stamp and edged it with black ink.  Using my sewing machine, I stitched around the perimeter with black thread.

The butterfly square was stamped onto a piece of a gel print I had on hand.   To stamp over paint, I used black Stayz On ink so it would dry completely.  I edged the square with black ink and positioned it as shown on the card front using foam tape.
