Flying Free!

Hello my friends! I want to share another Butterfly card made with Sparkle N Sprinkle stamps. This time I used Swallowtail Butterflies Digi Stamps. This set includes lots of sentiments, colored butterflies in different colors, black and white butterflies and it also have a coordinating pattern paper.

I used pre-colored butterflies in two different colors: pink and yellow. Butterflies in different colors are paired up. One set is larger then other. After I printed butterflies out, I 'colored' them with Versamarker pen, covered with Velvet Sparkle Embossing Powder and heat set with heat tool. Then I fussy cut them with scissors (this stamp set includes digital cut file. So you don't have to mess with scissors if you have a cutting machine). Then butterflies was adhered together from the center, I covered their bodies with Nuvo Glitter Drops (Chocolate Fondue).

Sentiment is from same Digital Stamp set. I changed its color to white and placed on top of colorful rectangle. I tried to to my best to mach the color with Peruvian Lily Microfine Glitter. This came out quite well :) After cutting the sentiment layer I added bit of Sakura Glue Pen to the top and bottom edges and then covered it with Peruvian Lily Microfine Glitter. Layer underneath the sentiment is just a strip of white cardstock which is inked with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Squash  Embossing Powder.

For the background I used piece of pink pattern paper. I stamped a big flourish from Flourishes 1 #516 Stamp set couple times with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Squash  Embossing Powder. This EP is semi-transparent. You can see on picture above how different it looks on white cardstock. Edges of the patter paper are inked with Picked Raspberry Distress Ink.

To embellish my card, I used strips of paper lace and few large flower sequins. In center of sequins are added Nuvo Crystal Drops (Dandelion Yellow). 

I love to add sparkling matting layers to my cards backgrounds. As usual, I adhere 1/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape to the edges of matting layer. After placing pattern paper in the center, I covered rest of the tape with Peruvian Lily Microfine Glitter.
