Fall Butterfly

The Stampendous DT is hopping this week showcasing the Stampendous products along with the Beacon Adhesives.


We were given an awesome selection of adhesives and they were all fantastic.  I used on this card a combination of Fast Finish (Decoupage) and Zip Dry Glue
 My butterfly is stamped in black ink and adding a mix of the color fragments to color the butterfly. I used the Zip dry to provide a layer of adhesive and then sprinkled my color fragments in bands of color. After this dried I covered the surface with Fast Finish to provide a glossy finish to my butterfly.  I then added a strip of Zip dry in the center and added the black glass glitter to the center of the butterfly.

I repeated the process with the color fragments on the corners of my card.

 I inked up the Decorative Grate stamp with yellow, orange and red dye inks and spritzed with water.  I stamped repeatedly until my background was finished. The edges were distressed with the distressing tool and a touch of the red dye ink. The sentiment was stamped in black ink and heat embossed using black embossing powder. The leaf and sprig was stamped with the deep red dye ink multiple times behind the butterfly.
