Sweet Stamps- Use two stamped Images

The Sweet Stamps Challenge this week is to use 2 stamped images.

  From the new Technique Junkies newsletter, I used a background technique ..... that I had to try- called Copic Color Double embossing. It involves Copics, an embossing folder and embossing powder. I used 4 families of the sketch sets- Sunshine, Tea Rose, Spring Leaf and Teal.
  I used my die set in different way too- I cut out the white layer, then sandwiched two dies together to make the outer frame:
 How fun, Huh?
I colored the images with the same Copic colors, and used Fairy Dust Creative Inspirations Paint on the butterfly image.

Here are the Sweet Stamps products I used on my card:
Daffodil floral image HERE
Butterfly image HERE
Copic Marker Sets HERE
Embossing Folder Swirls HERE
Ranger Embossing Ink HERE
Clear Embossing Powder HERE
Black Memento Tuxedo ink HERE
Creative Inspirations Paint HERE

Coordinations Cardstock 'Out to Sea' HERE
Rhinestones Silver HERE

Lovely card, Shelly! The butterfly and daffodils are so pretty! Did you ever see my FB post/photos on the hummingbird moth? They were attracted to the daffodils in my yard. 16 years and that is the first time I have seen such a beautiful "bug."

WOW on that background, Shelly! I love the way you did the frame around the image using the two dies together. I'm definitely going to have to try that.
