MMSC#59- Butterfly


My creation this week was made with Prisicllastyles digi Butterfly found here. All I can say is WOW. This will not be the last time you see this Butterfly from me. I absolutely love the details it has. You are going to love this.....and I heat embossed it. Yup, you heard me right!! How did I do it you ask? With a Zig Emboss it pen!!!

Here is some close up detail of this gorgeous butterfly. Shhhhh, I used crayola markers on this butterfly, then I took Rangers tea dye distress ink and pounced it all over the top. Then I cut it out and place crystal effects over the whole image. I then used a very fine glitter that I very carefully sprinkled all over the image.

The orange flowers are Prima flowers called Got Iced. I took my Ranger Distress Tea Dye ink and applied it to them as well to tone down the orange to a more vintage looking color. Then I randomly applied some glue and applied Diamond Dust to give them a frosted look.

This is the matching envelope. Throughout the card I used the Martha Stewart Butterfly PATP punch, Spellbinders die cuts both scalloped round and oval. The Sizzx leaves and flourish die.

My papers are from K & Company. I used spiced marmalade and peeled paint Rangers Distress Ink sponged around the outside of my papers.
