Life is Better with Friends

I've known forever that you can reshape clear stamps on acrylic blocks, but don't think I ever tried it.  Glad it's the current PTI MIM challenge, so I was inspired to finally make a card.  My PTI order got here & couldn't wait to use the Butterfly Hope stamp set.  
I started with something simple & just made a background by stamping the outline butterfly image in Soft Stone.  The sentiment from Wonderful Words: Friends is stamped in Brilliance Graphite Black.  The word is stacked 3 high with the top layer die cut from Aqua Mist which I also used for the mat.  
The edges of the mat & the word are covered with Spectrum Noir sparkle pen & Nuvo glitter drops provide embellishment.  I'm also entering Mrs. A's Butterfly Challenge, CAS on Sunday, Double D, SSS Monday, SSS Wednesday & Word Art Wednesday.  Company leaves tomorrow & I'll be catching up on blogs.  Thanks for stopping by.

  2. So pleased to see you here at the butterfly challenge. I love the way you have back stamped the butterflies and curved the sentiment to follow the corner. That is a super big sentiment too and just lends itself to being stacked. Thankyou for fluttering by. Hugs Mrs A.

  15. You've done a good job with this and getting the words nicely bent. I've tried and and haven't gotten much bend out of things. Then again I don't have particularly long sayings.
