Yesterday I was at a local crafting day and decided to take some things along to have a go at Mrs A's Butterfly Challenge. The theme this fortnight is Butterflies + D is for Decoupage and/or the colour Gold. For some reason, this theme took some thinking about, but this is what I came up with.
I've interpreted Decoupage and layering, so I've made three layers of the butterfly, attaching each layer with foam pads. The butterfly is an old SB die which comes in two parts. The front layer cuts out circle apertures. The back layer is solid and shows through the apertures. I die cut the solid butterfly three times for layering. The gold card is pearlised, which shows up the embossing on the butterfly beautifully. I used a Couture Creations embossing folder 'Bon Jour' which has a plain panel through the middle. I used it landscape, although it looks great turned round to make a long card. The sentiment is a Sizzix stamp, stamped in Versafine 'Onyx', and he tiny gold circles are waste from a die cut.
I am entering the following challenges:
