On Butterflies Wings

Hello friends - I have been having a lot of fun working on tutorials and articles for publication, but every now and then I just head to The Studio to create for creating sake - I am sure you know what I mean - for the sheer enjoyment of it- I also try and use of some of the things gathering between projects - and these stamped butterflies by Penny Black Inc are some of those images designed by the very talented Laura Kirste Campbell

The three butterflies have been stamped using Imagine Tuxedo Black and have been sponged using Imagine Radiant Neon Inks in Electric Yellow, Electric Pink and sponge daubers.  Next they have been fussy cut/hand cut using scissors and popped up onto a layer that has been cut/embossed using the third largest die from the Spellbinders A2 Modern Stationery Card Creator Etched DiesOn a side note - I do love this Die set and was in Phoenix at the Spellbinders Office with the other Designers and we got a sneak peek at the next release - and this die was one of them - always been a favourite!

The  A2 Modern Stationery Card Creator has been stamped using a rose stamp set - I am not too Sure who it is by but thinking it may be Viva Las Vegastamps - please let me know if you are able to help with the company name.  The butterflies have been glued to the Die cut, at the bodies and the wings been popped up using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Foam Squares for dimension.  A Little Birdie Crafts Handmade Flower Khloe - Pearl Pink, has been popped up onto the centre of each butterfly and a White Gel Pen has been used to add marking on the butterflies wings.

The card front has been created using two different patterned papers that have been glued to card stock.  A piece of thick pink spotted ribbon has been adhered around the centre, over the join.  Net the card front has been cut/embossed using the largest die from the Spellbinders Nestabilities Scored and Pierced Rectangles Etched Dies and the Platinum Die Cutting Machine; and then    popped up onto the slightly larger pre-cut white card front using Scrapboook Adhesives BY 3L E-Z Adhesive Runner Ultra. 

The sentiment has been trimmed and layered onto slightly larger pink card stock and adhered to the card base using E-Z Adhesive Runner Ultra.  Want2Scrap 250 Count - White Pearls have been adhered to each corner.
