This fabulous butterfly is from one of ArtisticOutpost 's two newest sheets, Happiness. I fell in love with these sets as soon as I saw them. This butterfly image is incredibly detailed! Use a firm pad when you stamp with it, unless you want a less filigreed look. I need to get more of these trendy felt flowers, I think this is the last of mine, and I really like the texture they add to a project. I only had a few, they came in a stamping kit from Self-Addressed this summer. The brown flowers are punches I punched out of scraps while visiting my sis in Denver. She has more punches than anyone, so I always use them when I see her! The flowers were not in the right color, so I smooshed them into my Chestnut Roan chalk pad. Don't be afraid to make what you have work. I can get caught up in trend lust, and I have to remind myself that I don't have to own everything ever invented for paper crafting. Most of us go back to what we love anyway, no matter how much stuff we have. I think today is a good day to get perspectives in order, don't you? If you know anything about the Resurrection, spend a minute thinking about the perspectives of the various people involved. He is risen!
