This week we are celebrating 500 TLC challenges!!
We're trying out STAMP ETCHING and adding a little sparkle to it to celebrate!
You can find full details of the challenge HERE.
After failing to come up with a suitable line-art stamp, I used a silhouette stamp, outlined it with a fine pen and then added my etching lines and dots.
First, I made a base layer using Tumbled Glass, Weathered Wood and wrinkle-free distress.
Then I stamped the coneflower using Misting with Markers. I outlined it with my finest black pen and added lines, cross-hatching and dots.
Then I stamped the grass with Peeled Paint and sponged some more green over it.
I edged it with a black marker, and added it to a base sponged with Peeled Paint distress stain and scribbled over with a gold leafing pen.
For my added sparkle I stamped the solid butterfly from Papillon Potpourri in Versamark and used Stamp and Stick to add gilding flakes.
I lost my entire write-up earlier :-(, and don't have time to fill all the fields in again before work, but all details are in my write-up. I'll fill the fields in later!

Wow, it's amazing how the pen 'etching' really REALLY adds to the floral image. That stamp set has been one of my favorites since it was first introduced and you've taken it to the next level! LOVE it!
