An Oldie But Goodie

Hi, everyone!
Thursday's are Oldie But Goodie Days at Catch the Bug Blog
I love OBG day because I can break out some of my favorite Bugaboo Stamps to play with, and have an excuse to show them on my blog! lol! (As if I need an excuse, right?!)
Today I am using the Silhouette Butterfly from Bugaboo Stamps.  I'm not sure about you, but I love Bugaboo images for their "cute" factor! I adore all of the fun, cute stuff Jodie draws, but there are also so many things she offers that are more along the lines of creating  "pretty" and "beautiful". This image falls more under those categories to me. I have used it before (you can visit that creation here), but this time I used it a little differently.
I digitally "stamped" the image in a blue color, and instead of printing it on plain white paper, I printed it on my designer paper. It created more of a 'stamped collage' look by using this technique. I added some rhinestones to all of my butterflies to give the card some bling, and I inked the edges of each layer (thin and light) to add just a bit of dimension. My main butterfly is popped up on pop dots.
