Butterfly Gel Press Greetings

Hi all! Chris here and today I am excited to share this cute card I created with my Sin City Stamps! I was trying to re-create a garden against a brick wall and fence.  I love the mix of the "industrial" look with the elegance of a butterfly!

Sin City Stamps Dandelion Wishes 
Embossing Ink
Embossing Powder
Card stock - white, maroon
Scallop Circle Punch
Fencing Sticker
Brick Wall Stencil
Gel Press Plate
Paint - Red, Brown

Step 1: Spread Red Paint over Gel Press Plate.

Step 2 : Using a brayer,  pull up most of red paint, leaving some around edges.

Step 3: Spread brown paint over the Gel Pate (on top of red paint).  Lay brick stencil over painted plate. 
Step 4: Lay a piece of scrap paper over the plate and press down.  This removes ink in the stencil area. Gently remove stencil and the remaining paint will be what you use.

Step 5: Lay your white card stock onto gel press and remove.  Let dry.  Your press image should look something like this. 

Step 6:  Stamp Dandelions from Sin City Stamps Dandelion Wishes  onto brick wall. 
Step 7: Add Fence Sticker. 

Step 8: Stamp Greeting from Sin City Stamps Dandelion Wishes onto punch scalloped circle with embossing ink and emboss with White embossing powder. 

Step 9: Add Greeting to card.

 Step 10: Stamp butterfly from Sin City Stamps Butterfly Silhouette with Text .  Fussy cut butterfly and add to card.
