Layered Illusion

Kylie over at Kylie's Craft Corner posted a beautiful card she created using the layered illusion technique. I was looking for one more type of card to take away with me this weekend for my retreat so had a try. This one of those cards I look at and say 'yep, I really like that'. Then next time I look at it I think I should of done things a little different. Anyways, thanks Kylie for sharing the link for the technique I have had a wonderful time creating this. Tutorial for the Layered Illusion technique can be found here at Michelle's blog - Freedom in Creating.
For my card I used SU Basic Black for the base card. Stamped the three butterflies onto white card using SU Teal and Perfect Plum. I then heat embossed the flourishes around the edge using a clear embossing powder. The images are all from the SU Priceless set. Then I sponged layers of SU Pale Plum, Lavender Lace and Perfect Plum.
