Quick and Easy Oriental Butterfly card created for Chocolate Baroque

AW Oriental Butterfly CAS

Good morning. This was one of my samples for the recent shows on Hochanda with Lesley Wharton. It is a quick and easy make.

I used a technique demonstrated on one of Lesley’s shows recently. I inked up a 4 inch round gelli printing plated with Distress Ink and then lifted off some of the ink using the Big Bold Background Leafy Trails stamp, then transferred the image to stamping card. I overstamped with the butterfly and swirl from Patchwork Butterfly set using Versafine. Finally I added a little colour with a gold sparkle pen and edged the topper with black marker to frame.

Materials:

Big Bold Background Leafy Background and Patchwork Butterfly stamps

6 X 6 inch scalloped white card blank, white stamping card

Inkpads: Versafine (Black Onyx), Distress Ink (Peacock Feathers)

Alcohol marker (black) and sparkle pen (gold)

Gelli Printing Plate (4 inch circle)

Materials:

How to make it:

  1. Colour the stamping card quickly with aquatints (or use Brusho’s, watercolours or spritzer inks) dropping colours on ‘wet in wet’. Blot off excess with kitchen towel and dry with a heat gun.
  2. Dust the surface with talc, antistatic powder or corn flour. This stops the embossing powder sticking where you don’t want it. Stamp the image with Versamark. Heat emboss with the black sparkle powder.
  3. Colour parts of the image quickly with the glitter pens and add highlights with the white pen (just ‘scribble’ quickly around the flower petal edges).
  4. Outline the card with black marker, glue and mount to the card front.
