Yay, this is my 5th and last Verve challenge card to celebrate the release of new sets this Friday! Head over to the Verve forum on SCS and check out the contest details! I had fun with this butterfly...embossed him first by stamping in Versamark on watercolor paper, then heat embossing with black EP. Julia's Way to Use It Challenge was to heat emboss...symbolic of the heat wave that most people are experiencing. I then spritzed the image with water, dipped a brush in Only Orange reinker and a second one in Summer Sun reinker. I touched the brushes lightly to the image and the ink ran and filled up the embossed sections. I figured if the technique works on rose images, why not butterflies?! I liked the finished guy and perched him on the card to steal the show. The sentiment is one I especially like from Verve...I've been trying to follow it in my personal life as stressors get a bit overwhelming sometimes. We don't have to carry the load alone...we can cast it all on HIM and what a relief it can become for us!
