Hello, I hope you are doing well. I am back home after our trip to California and have got lots to catch up with, so I will get right to it. Today over at Seize the Birthday Vicki has chosen Halloween Colors as our topping. I recently purchased this incredible Butterfly Emboss and Cut from Pink and Main and I have been itching to play with it. I thought I could get away with using it for this challenge and make myself a somewhat Monarch-looking butterfly. It embosses and cuts at the same time. I have linked it up for you HERE!
Card Details: First I took my leaves stencil from Miss Ink Stamps and made my background using three shades of Oxide Inks and then splattered it with some black paint. I had this white frame on my desk that was made with my Lattice die from Whimsy Stamps. So, I backed it with some orange cardstock to frame in the butterflies. After I embossed and cut out the butterflies, (which are linked up for you above) I used more oxide inks and a bit of white paint to make my butterflies come to life. I used a small holly die from Spellbinders to make my gold body centers and random dots. I can’t remember where the sentiment is from as it was waiting to be used in my bits and boxes drawer. I used some foam tape around the frame to give the card some dimension and to rest the butterflies wings on.
