SCACD Digital images for USA and International can always be found HERE.

The first piece I am sharing today features the elegant stamp BUTTERFLY CHRYSALIS - CHANGE - one of the stamps in the new ECLECTIC 2 collection recently released.

The center chrysalis was stamped in VersaFine Onyx Black ink and heat dried.  The other two were stamped in Memento London Fog ink.  All three were colored with Copic markers.  On the center chrysalis the wing was stamped a second time, colored, cut out and glued down after bending it to give a slight dimensional curve.  Liquid Pearls were added to all three for a finishing touch. 
 This piece also uses two of the dies from SCACD -  Classic Corners and Garden Corners.  They are heat embossed in copper and verdigris powders.  The background is colored with Copics, then sponged in Ranger Distress Inks using ColorBox Swirldot and Prima Crackle stencils.  Stickles were added to a few of the background swirl dots.
My second piece today features a stamp from the adorable new BRAVE HEARTS collection - BE YOU.

This cute girl and the background are both colored with Copic markers.   The background was then sponged a bit with coral and teal inks.  She was first stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  The sentiment that comes with the set was stamped in a variety of colors using waterbase markers to color the stamp.  The face and button from the girl's shirt and hat were also colored with waterbase markers and stamped down the side, then colored with Copics.  The die cut corners are SCACD dies - Classic Corners.  They are heat embossed in a coral embossing powder.
