Stampsmith DT - Butterfly Kisses

This is a lovely detailed stamp and it's always worked well for me.  The first sample is layered on one of the fabulous Webster's Pages sheets.  The letters are Maya Road, coloured in the same green ink as the image and covered with glitter embossing powder. 


This smaller image gives a closer, clearer view of the glittery sheen and the same was done to the butterflies.



Finally, another tag for our forum tag swap.  This one's for Chris who chose the theme of children.


The velvet flowers are from Maya Road and yes I know I should have made my own! LOL

This stamp works so well in those colours. I have never tried anything other than black or sepia for this image. Adorable is the word that comes to mind for both pieces. Lynne M

Utterly beautiful! Such an adorable image and your stamping is just perfect! Yeah, you should've made your own flowers! Loved your lace and velvet ribbon flowers in the CS. And the poem was so moving...;)

I was wondering where the well was from...works so well with your wishes title. A favourite stamp of mine too, both pieces have turned out beautifully Carol.

Congratulations on your article first of all. Then on this piece - it is beautiful and the closeup shows the gorgeous glitter.
As usual - stunning work.

Beautiful, Carol. Love that green - which ink is it, please? It's a beautiful image. Presumably, Stampsmith? Really must treat myself to some of hers one day - some of them are stunning!

Love your journalling, too - am itching to give it a go!

Just gorgeous - both of these! I can see I've missed out on a lot of things going on here. Congrats on the new article and those bees! My son had to have same happen at his place. Incredible process watching the beekeeper's taking them away and there are so many. xxoo
