Greetings blog friends!!!  

Did you get a chance to join in on the new stamp set release "Contain Yourself" from Repeat Impressions, blog hop?  What fun that was and a big CONGRATULATIONS goes to Stamping Sue on her win of the whole sheet of stamps.  

Here we go with another fun DCC from The House That Stamps Built blog.   This time it's Deonna's turn to challenge us and she has chosen "Fur or Winged Things".   Repeat Impressions has so many stamps to select from for this challenge that it was difficult for me to decide what I wanted to play with.  I finally decided on butterflies, because I love them and there are so many out and about these days.  

Here's my card for Deonna's challenge

The butterflies are RI#9001-L "Butterfly Lg" and 9009-F "Butterfly Sm".  I stamped both butterfly images on my one layer card with Memento black ink and colored them with Copic markers.  I then stamped the larger butterfly again on to vellum with VersaFine black ink, sprinkled clear embossing power over that image, then heat embossed it.  I then repeated coloring on the backside of the vellum piece with Copic markers.  Before attaching the vellum butterfly I created the "bokeh technique" (a photography technique) using a pencil eraser and two inks.  I then attached just the center of the butterfly to the card, leaving the wings to lift off the card layer.  

After dropping by the other Rock Stars' blogs and see their inspiring cards with this challenge join us.  The details of how to win some fabulous RI stamps can be found at The House.
