Creative Card Crew "Create a Scene"

Good afternoon everyone.
Well the weather can't make up it's mind today but at least it's not raining.

I've spent a lovely couple of hours in my craft room today, I've rediscoved my heat gun and embossing powders over the last week or so and I'm having lots of fun with them.

I'm going to enter the card I made this morning into the Creative Card Crew challenge where this week's theme is "Create a Scene". I've used three separate stamps on this card and I hope it counts.

The stamps I've used are from the "Butterfly Poppy" plate by Elusive images. I stamped the two background images onto white card using Brilliance ink, I then heat embossed the chequered stamp with holographic embossing powder. Next I coloured in the poppy using Brilliance ink and a water brush. The butterfly was stamped onto pattered paper and heat embossed, again with holographic powder. I then inked and heat embossed the edges of the white card (I don't think this shows up in the photo unless you click to enlarge it). I stuck the butterfly on to the card with gel glue so it is raised up.

I've made several more cards, tags and notelets, all using the same stamp plate so I won't bore you with them.

I hope you are all enjoying your weekends. Thank you for visiting my blog and for any comment you may leave - I love to read them all.

Great card, I've just dug out my heat gun and embossing powders which had been consigned to the back of the cupboard..... hoping to get chance to use them over the hols.... Thanks for your anniversary wishes, had a lovely meal.
