Mrs. A's Butterfly Challenge where the theme is to use three designer papers. When I made this butterfly it was with the intention of entering it in the previous challenge which was to use either heat or dry embossing on the butterfly but then I realised that another week had whizzed by and I missed the deadline. I had stamped the Chocolate Baroque butterfly with Versamark ink onto one of my Brusho practice pieces and used WOW Halloween embossing powder which is made up of fine black powder and gorgeous copper glitter. As I had used watercolour paper originally the black didn't come up very shiny but it had melted enough to hold the glitter in place. The close up below shows how glittery it is. I liked the way the butterfly turned out so when I saw what the new challenge theme was I looked for some papers to go with it. I found this 6"x6" pad of grey to
black, and white that came from The Works some time ago. I chose three designs and cut strips to fit the front of a 15cm. square card, using
my scallop cutter for the centre piece.I placed the butterfly with silicon
glue to raise the wings slightly.
The greeting is also from Chocolate Baroque, stamped onto a snippet of the same paper, cut with a spellbinder label die. ( I'm sorry I don't know which one.) This was mounted onto another of the papers cut with the next size die and then onto white card cut by hand after drawing round the outside of the die. The little flowers are punched out of the same piece of paper as the butterfly with an Xcut punch, and a tiny amber coloured gem placed in the centre of each.
Thank you to all who come to take a look and for the lovely comments you leave, they are all really appreciated.
