Don't have a heart attack. Yes I have done something different to copics for a change lol.
Few techniques in this one.
First I stamped and gold embossed the Hero Arts Background Stamp
on cardstock then I blended pinks from Distress Inks. Started with one idea then changed my minded just ended up blending all together. I set this aside as a lost cause, then thought of something else soooo I got out the butterfly die I had purchased quite a while ago and not used (Simon Says Drift die)
Here you can see how pretty it looks cut from this coloured and gold embossed piece of card.
Instead of leaving in its own frame I die cut again in white card stock but left the butterflies and frame still in the negative. I then attached a piece of plain card to the back inside to hold all the pieces in place. I will cover this when I attach the insert I add to the inside of all my cards so no worries about it looking messy.
I then glued all the coloured butterflies back into their correct spots with the ones with complete wings bent upwards and those with parts missing because they are covered by the butterfly above or below I glued on flat.
I then used the stamps and die from the Simon Says set. I cut the sentiment in half so it fit better, used the Misti to stamp the sentiment. Layered up the die cut sentiment three times, attached and added a small sparkly gold gem for the dot in the word 'smile'.
I also ended up cutting out watercolour mixes of butterflies, plain ones, Inktense coloured ones and patterned paper ones. Its amazing how you start off with one thing then get sidetracked along the way. Of course they areal cut but still need to be made up.
I would like to enter this:
Blending inks is certainly one of my favourite ways of making my mark
