Spots and Silver-glitter Embossed Butterflies

Hello,

Somehow, the card I made this time feels completely different from all the cards I’ve made until now – and I don’t know why! 😀

2014-11-30(a)

I started by sponging some Dried Marigold distress ink all over my card base. I then stamped some dots from JustRite Bokeh Time stamp set in ColorBox Orange pigment ink. I stamped them in a polka dot fashion, and also brought a generation stamping – I started stamping in the center and stamped next to it the second and third time without re-inking.

Once this dried I heat embossed the butterfly from Penny Black Soft Wings stamp using Wow Regular Metallic Copper embossing powder. I also stamped the same on some vellum and heat embossed it using Wow Metallic Silver Sparkle embossing powder. I then fuzzy cut the vellum embossed butterfly.

I stamped the sentiment from Winnie & Walter Big Bold You stamp set and heat embossed it using the same Silver Sparkle embossing powder. I love the beautiful silver glittery look this powder gives! 🙂

I then adhered the vellum butterfly over the butterfly on the card base at an angle, completely adhering the right part of the wing and leaving the left wing free. I then cut it off the side, so that the wing was not hanging off the card.

This completed my card! Thanks for looking! 🙂

  1. Hi Ashwini. Gorgeous design with the brokeh technique background. Love the butterflies done in the different metallic colours .. so pretty! Thanks for joining us at ATCAS.

  2. What a stylish and dramatic card, lovely! We do like to see some white space, ideally, for LIM submissions though, do read the guidelines if you’re in doubt 🙂

  3. A super striking card but as Anne says we do prefer to see ‘white space’ at LIM.

  4. This is a very spectacular butterfly… as Anne mentioned we do like to see a little white space on our submissions, but it’s a stunning card.
