The Most Beautiful Things in the World

Happy Monday!
I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend!  I'm here to share our new challenge over at Digi Makeover!  This weeks challenge is a fun one:  Make Your Own Background!!

I watched a little tutorial over on Pinterest earlier last week and decided to give it a try.  It worked out alright...but I want to play around with different papers and see if I can get better at it all.
I don't know what the technique was called, but basically you cover the debossed side of an embossing folder with versamark and run your paper through your embossing machine.  The embossing ink will transfer to your paper in the non embossed areas, and you just cover it with your powder and heat it up!  It worked out pretty well for this card.  I think the texture of the paper made it difficult to get a good coating of the powder, but it still looks awesome.  I could see using this on so many of my embossing folders :)

I used a sweet sentiment from Paper Makeup Stamps Color it Summer stamp set, and some butterflies from that same set.  I colored them in with my pencils and added some Wink of Stella glitter pen to the wings.  I'm so addicted to that glitter pen!  Best couple of bucks I ever spent :)

The sentiment is cut out with a spellbinders label and I wrapped a double layer of ribbon through the holes and tied it with a sweet bow.  Pretty simple, but so cute!!

Be sure to stop by and join in the fun this week with us over at Digi Makeover!!
