I've made a standard sized card (4.25" x 5.5") with a Colonial White base. I dry embossed the Kraft CS and free hand cut a hole to look like a hole in a tree. I also lightly sponged a bit of Desert Sand ink across the raised lines to make them stand out a bit more.
For the large butterfly I sponged the base image with ink. I used sponge daubers and just tapped ink onto the stamp. After stamping that image, I inked the detail image with black ink and stamped over the solid image. The result is a beautiful butterfly! The small butterflies were stamped in Sweet Leaf, Pacifica and 2nd generations Pacifica. The large butterfly has 3D Foam Tape under the right wing so give a bit of dimension. The background was created with sponges and ink.
