Crafter's Companion~Kimono Butterfly Silk

Crafter's Companion
Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you've had an awesome weekend so far! I'm back today to share a card for Crafter's Companion USA using Butterfly Silk from the new Kimono Series of stamps, dies and embossing folders! They are all so gorgeous!! 
I tried something different this time around. I was originally going to emboss this in gold, but couldn't find my gold embossing powder. I didn't let that deter my from my vision for this card. So I stamped her on some kraft colored cardstock. Next, I used a Sharpie Gold Paint Pen and traced around the black lines. Then I used a fine Zig black pen and followed inside the gold outline and filled in the large areas with my Spectrum Noir Black marker. Once I colored all the black in I went over the gold lines again and then cleaned up the gold lines that were too thick with the Zig .01 Pen. Finally, I fussy cut the image out.
I used some origami paper and ribbon from my stash. The awesome butterfly in the top corner is from Die'sire Essentials Dies-Beautiful Butterflies. The sentiment is part of the Kimono Butterfly Silk Stamp Set.
 Be sure to check out the Crafter's Companion Blog for all sorts of inspiration by my fellow DT Sisters, and to see some of the new product coming to the store! And don't forget to check out the Crafter's Companion FB Page for even more ideas!

Have an awesome week!
