So I decided to attempt a little shadow stamping on my card:
I used the fabulous Visible Image butterfly inkcognito and stamped it in grey to act as the shadow. Then I overstamped it in purple slightly to the left of the grey with the matching large butterfly stamp.
I repeated this technique with the sentiment. All of the butterfly received a generous coat of Wink of Stella and I added some enamel dots to finish it all off.
Stamps: Visible Image, Thanks You set, Butterfly Inkognito, Large Butterfly
Inks: SU, smoky slate; Memento, grape jelly
Enamel dots: Freckled Fawn
