THE BUTTERFLY

Hi, just a quick post today.  I made this card after seeing the Try a new Technique on Split Coast stampers Monday.  It involves inking one side of  an embossing folder then running your paper through.  It called for white on white with just a touch of pale color.  It's based on the look of Irish pottery. So anyway, this was my take on it.


Besides the embossing folder and chalk ink in sand, I used the butterfly die from Stampin Up.
The square die is Spellbinders.  The corners are a Paper Shapers punch.  White pearls.
I painted the entire embossed piece with DecorArt Glitter paint, as well as the butterfly.

Had a hard time getting a picture of this one, was dark all day today and shadows were a real problem.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great Wednesday.  Until later...........

Sue, "A Touch of Class" for sure. This card would have been treasured by my Grandmother. She would have framed this one and displayed it proudly. Anything that reminds me of her just melts my heart. That embossing folder and your corners are lovely. It really has the beautiful look of Irish Pottery. Nicely done. Enjoy your day.
