Thank You - Collage Stamped Card

Today I am sharing a card I made for The Rubber Cafe with a colorful collage of various Rubber Cafe' stamps!  I'm using-  Butterfly Set, Paris Nights Background, Floral Silhouette, Grandma's Doilies, and Fabulous Phrases!

Here is a brief tutorial on how I put the card together.

1. I cut a piece of white cardstock 4" x 5.25". I rubbed the Dusty Concord distressed inks across the Paris Nights Background and stamped it in the middle of the cardstock

2. Next I rubbed Wild Honey distressed inks on a few of the Grandma's Doilies and stamped them randomly around the background stamp.

3. I layered on the butterflies and flowers stamps to create a collage background.

4. I colored in some of the remaining white spots and distressed the edges with the distressed inks.

5. I stamped "Thanks" from Fabulous Phrases set on the bottom of the card with distressed inks.

6. Next I stamped some butterflies with Memento Black Ink, fussy cut the images, and painted them with the distressed inks - adding some water and using a paint brush.

7. I adhered the butterflies with Scrap Happy Glue and added some crystal bling. I framed the piece with dark purple cardstock and attached it to a 4.25" x 5.5" white cardstock card.

Here is another picture of the card!
