Butterflies Galore & First Video Tutorial

It’s Sunday and you know what that means for this week … Fashionable Stamping has a new challenge for you and this time we would like to see all those …

Butterflies Or Bugs. I decided on butterflies because they are so delicate and pretty … not that bugs aren’t but the word bugs just puts me off … what a wimp I am!!!!

For my DT card I first painted a chipboard butterfly with black acrylic paint … twice. When dry patted Versamark all over then added black ultra thick embossing enamel … did this three times . For the last time Versamark was patted onto it so that I could add the perfect pearls mica powder … this made it shimmer and shine. Melted all this again then stamped into it with my Artemio Butterfly Collage stamp which was inked with Brilliance Galaxy Gold … you can buy all these items from our sponsor Marina at Cottage Crafts. Stamped and embossed onto a piece of acetate with the same ink pad and added to the front of the card which had been cut out with a spellbinders frame die.

This is a first for me girls … so excited … my very first Video Tutorial on how to make the second butterfly on the card. This is a concertina butterfly and at the moment my favourite item to make … have a box full of them 😀 If you would like a copy of the Butterfly Template please click the email button above and type Butterfly in the subject box and I will send to you..

Today is the day you have to see all the DT’s creations because everyone is a wowser.
Terry’s beautiful stamped gourd is certainly a show stopper … please keep all those thoughts very clean when first see it!!!!! 😯
