After I finished colouring in my flowers last night I got thinking wonder how a No-lines butterfly would look? No time like the present to find out.
I stamped this butterfly that is really a very big image. I stamped in a pale Distress Ink and started playing around.
I coloured with copics and added some white dots with my gel pen and then brushed over the whole thing with Wink of Stella for some sparkle. This photo shows it best, if you click on it and enlarge you can see the sparkle. In this photo its looking a bit selective (like a bit of dandruff here and there lol)
After I had finished colouring the butterfly the big decision became how to add this to a card.
I tried a number of card stocks, patterned papers and finally hit on this wonderful gold paper. It just works!
I die cut with my oval stitched die then decided to use a green card base so again I die cut the oval so I could set the gold layer flat with the green. I then stamped the butterflies antenna in black staz-on ink so it would not rub off. Glued the butterfly flat onto the gold base at the body of the butterfly and added some dimensional tape under the wings so I could get a bit of lift. Die cut the 'thank you' words three times, glued them together then added to the card base. Finished off with these clear sparkly gems.
I love how the butterfly turned out but not sure it is really right for this technique as butterflies do have black outlines and patterns on them in real life. But I did enjoy this experiment.

Hope this counts after saying it does, I did stamp the butterfly before colouring and cutting out.
Ok thank you so much for coming to visit and I hope you come again soon.
