Cardz TV challenge #5

Mary over at CARDZ TV is having a challenge using Butterflys, Birds, or Bees Challenge #5.

I figured it would be perfect to use this new stamp set that I recently picked up at Micheal's, its a Hero Arts stamp set the numbers are CL867.

I also wanted to try a Jennifer McGuire technique but I could not get it to work right with the colors I had choosen so I scraped it and went with a traditional two step stamping. CLICK HERE to see the original idea I had going on.

 I started out by putting the stamps I wanted on my clear blocks.

I also have a mouse pad underneath because these are very solid images and that mouse pad gives extra coushin to make a clean stamped image.

I am using Crushed Curry ink on the same card stock along with Tangelo Twist ink to do the second stamping.
The card panel is 4 by 5 1/4 inches. I wrapped some thin string around the card a few times and adhered it to the back with some tape.

 I stamped the butterflys very random as if I was creating my own pattern paper.

Using Versa Fine Black Onyx ink to stamp my sentiment. 

The sentiment is from a Clearly Besotted set called Dandelion Dreams.
 I added some foam squares to the back of the pannel since this is a very clean and simple card.
Finished Card, I tied a bow on the gathered string.
