Another Blog hopping card

I had so much fun making the one yesterday, and I had one more image left over, I had to make another card today. Love how this one turned out! It even enabled me to finally trim a stamp set I hadn't cut out yet from the early release for the TAC demos back in Jan. Inking up a new set is always fun too! This came together so nicely! I used those Koh-i-noor pencils again that my friend Kim always uses. They are very easy to blend. Kinda wish they had a lot more colors! Might need to peak online and see what I can find!

I cut the butterfly out, and than took my razor to separate the wings. So, the middle wing is pushed out higher with the dot. The other wings and body are glued down on the paper. I did one of my favorite techniques to the background sheet, dazzling diamond dust.
Be sure to peak at the other TAC demos who are playing on this round, too. It's always neat to see how other people use a set. My other card I made with this set is the post below this one.

Oh, and yesterday, I posted I cased a layout from Tammi. I put in a link to show the card she made, and it didn't take for some reason. So, I'm stinking it in this post.
Supplies: TAC Swirly butterfly, graffic blooms, Koh-I-Noor pencils, Versamark ink pad, Prussian blue palette ink pad, Lilly Anna SWIC paper line, DCWV cardstock, prima flower.
