Hi all! ...just posting some cards I have been working on :) .. another one tomorrow. I have been totally obsessed these critters lately!
I printed (laser print on thin card) the digi sheet from the Ornate Cut-Out Butterfly set and coloured and cut the largest butterfly on the sheet. I did alot of playing and experimenting LOL! First, I coloured with a blue Neocolor II water soluble crayon ( just on the inner edge of wings ) and blended out with a waterbrush. I carefully used my glue pen on the coloured areas of the wings. I glittered with Glamour Dust. Now here is where I a bit crazy!... I got my little quilt/craft iron and melted bees wax pellets all over the butterfly and evened it out with a blast of my heat tool, it gave a neat translucency to the wings and toned the glitter down a bit ( it also moved the glitter into the black oops.. but I still like the look.. next time I'll coat it with UTEE instead ). The wax also stiffened the wings a bit so they stay in their fluttering position ;)
The background is alcohol inks and I used EK Success punches. This is another alcohol inked background I had made a while ago and now I WISH I would have wrote down what colours I used! LOL
Have a great day!
