Stamped Background Focus // Avery Elle

Hello, I'm here today with a card background made using two small image stamps.
This card is for the AEI{heart}U Embossing challenge, with the entire embossed background created using the two small branch images from the adorable Storybook stamp set.
Seriously, can't stop using it.

I topped off the little fawn with an embossed bow, and added some embossed butterflies to give the fawn something to look at. Once I had heat embossed the butterflies, I flipped them over and colored their wings using a Distress Ink marker. After coloring, I zapped the butterflies once more with the heat gun, so that the marker coloring didn't smear.

I did some simple coloring on the fawn with a Memento Marker in Desert Sand. This is the best it gets from someone coloring impaired (i.e. me). ;)

I doubled up the white part of the frame, just to give a little dimension to the project. 

And guess what? I made a video!

That's it for me today! Thanks so much for stopping in and God bless!
