It’s Dare to Get Dirty week on Splitcoast! I made this for Kittie’s fabulous challenge (DTGD13Kittie747). You’ll need to be a Splitcoast Fan Club Member to view the challenge.

For my card, I used images from Our Daily Bread designs. The background was made by using a brayer and rolling soft sand ink across the inside of the embossing folder then embossing a piece of white card stock. Since the ink only goes onto the raised surfaces of the folder, those areas become the recesses of the card stock. The brayer makes it a little more even, but I still had a few white areas, so I cheated a bit by filling those in w/ a Copic marker (Eggshell) that closely matched.

The butterflies were white embossed on vellum, the large one has a matching die, the small one was fussy cut. I attached only the centers of the butterflies to matching ivory shapes underneath. The sentiment was white embossed on vellum and backed w/ a sponged, die cut oval to make it stand out more. A Memory Box die cut frame was added on top w/ a few pearls. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
