*SweetStamps #121

Happy Tuesday everyone!
I am running a bit late today!! :( 
It is time for another themed challenge over at SweetStamps
This weeks challenge is:
PARCHMENT CRAFT
Now when I was first introduced to Parchment Craft, I was lost!! 
Then once I tried it, I LOVED it!!  It is and can be a tad bit time consuming; however, the results are just stunning.  I need to remind myself that I need to purchase some more grid/pattern plates. 
For my card today, I am working with  SweetStamps Parchment Crafting Kit and Dot Butterfly, which is really perfect for parchment craft. 
I stamped the Dot Butterfly, using the white dye ink, onto the parchment paper and embossed with white embossing powder.  I turned the image over and using the staggered grid plate and small stylus, I created the dots you see all around the butterfly.  Now....You can quickly rub the stylus over the grid, but you will not get the same results, if you just take your time and actually puncture each hold on the grid.  Like I said, the process can be time consuming, but the results are beautiful.  I stamped and embossed a second flower and cut out just the side wings, to create an extra layer.  I added ice white liguid pearl to the wings and the border of the card.  Creating these dots, do take a steady hand, which I have come to find out, I do not have!!  LOL!
