Vibrant Butterfly

Rachel’s stunning card was created with the large butterfly and a sentiment from our BUTTERFLY EFFECT and LIVE LIFE NOW stamp sets, with our fabulous BUTTERFLY INK stencil.

[Tutorial] I just love how using lively colours when crafting can brighten your day. For this card I’ve teamed up the ‘Butterfly Effect’ and the ‘Live Life Now’ stamp sets with the ‘Butterfly Ink’ stencil.

To begin with I smoothed distress grit paste through the ‘Butterfly Ink’ stencil onto a piece of white card and left this to dry. I then sprayed the image with ‘Pink Flamingo’ and ‘Lemon Zest’ dylusions ink spray. Next I stamped the group of butterflies from the ‘Live Life Now’ stamp set in Versafine Clair ‘Charming Pink’ ink across one half of the background. To make the stencilled image stand out, I then added some ‘Saltwater Taffy’ distress oxide all over the image and drew around the image in a purple Stabilo watercolour pencil. The edges of the stencilled image were then faux bleached using a water brush.

On another piece of card I blended ‘Salvaged Patina’ distress ink all over it before stamping the sentiment and main butterfly image from the ‘Butterfly Effect’ stamp set as well as 3 smaller butterflies. I then added to the large image by stamping one of the elements across the middle of the butterfly.

To finish the card all the elements were layered onto black card and a white card blank and stuck into position using 3D foam pads or acrylic glue. Finally, the butterflies were made to sparkle using a Wink of Stella glitter pen. Happy crafting! Rachel ♡
