I remember admiring LunarLana‘s gallery back in 2004, when I officially joined the stamper’s community called Splitcoaststampers (after lurking on the site for several months). It’s great to see her chosen as the first featured stamper of this new year!
Looking through her gallery for something to CASE, my eyes fell on this orange butterfly card with the faux torn edge. It’s been a while since I used the faux tearing technique — a great way to add some interest to a fairly simple card. I blended a couple of distress inks together and stamped butterfly images with black ink while a torn piece of scrap paper was temporarily adhered to the top of the white card stock.
I hope to be posting with more frequency in the future, but I didn’t quite make it a new year’s resolution.
Thanks for stopping by, and Happy New Year to you!
