Split Panel Card

Hi Everyone! I want to show you a card I made using several techniques. This is a split panel card where I stamped Hero Arts A Real Wild Poppy stamp on one panel repeated times. I used a dot Stampin' Up stamp around the flowers. I used Versa Mark ink to stamp, added clear embossing powder and heat set it. I then sponged on Broken China, Bundled Sage and Tea Dye Distress inks. The embossing powder acted as a resist. I then cut the panel into three parts, made them different heights to add interest and added a brown border of card stock to each panel. I also dyed some seam binding to match the card. The butterflies were cut from patterned paper using Tim Holtz's Butterfly Frenzy die.

             Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have a great day! God bless!

Very pretty! I had to look at your description twice because compared, the tea dye ink looks so peach! It is very pretty. I like the split panel! I have not tried that often.
