Stained Glass Butterfly

Our technique for this month's card class was the "Stained Glass" one which you will see on my previous post.

Again our butterfly was die cut using the "Beautiful Butterflies" Bigz Die Item No: 114507 £18.95 which you will find in the Mini Catalogue on Page 7.  We cut the top Butterfly layer from Vellum and the bottom in Whisper White which helps the Stained Glass efffect stand out as the vellum is translucent.

You need to ink up the Vellum Butterfly using VersaMark ink, I have used the "Fine Flourish" mini background stamp, then dip into your black embossing powder and heat using the Heat Tool.  You then colour in the image on the reverse side.  Very pretty and yet so simple!

The greeting is from "Perfect Punches" stamp set, inked in Rich Razzleberry and punched out using the XL Oval Punch then layered onto one of the Sizzlits "Lots of Tags" dies which are also found in the Mini Catalogue on Page 8.

The leafy image behind the Butterfly is from the "Hopeful Thoughts" stamp set which looks beautiful coloured with the marker pens in different colours but as we were already doing lots of pen work we just inked it in co-ordinating Pear Pizzazz.
