I used a cute stamp from the Penny Black set Happy Critters, heat embossed using Versafine Clair Nocturne ink and Clear Embossing Powder, and I colored with a mix of Copic Markers and Faber Castell Polychromos pencils. The butterflies are part of a wood mounted Penny Black stamp (What a Spring - old, linked to ebay).
It's hard to tell but the background was inked with Tumbled Glass ink and I used an old Cloud stencil from Stampin Up to create clouds. You can easily make your own cloud stencil out of a scallop circle punch or even cut by hand if you don't own one, there are Youtube videos available to show you how to.
Grass from the Penny Black set Enjoy Life was stamped using Shabby Shutters and Mowed Lawn Distress inks and then I added the border die cut using Penny Black's die Love Always. I first inked up a strip of paper using Shabby Shutters and Picked Raspberry ink, then cut it out with a manual Big Shot machine.
Sentiment is also from Penny Black, from the set Sweet Wishes, also heat embossed. When the card front was complete, I ran it through my die cutting machine using Avery Elle's Wonky Stitches Die.
