At IO. I chose to give a Sneak Peak at one of Gary Robertson's new stamps, Butterfly Scene. He does some really creative things with his scene stamps and this is just one of them. I stamped it on Neenah Solar White cardstock with Archival Jet Black ink. It was painted with Twinkling H2O's and then highlighted with Ranger Stickles glitter glues.
I trimmed around the image and then adhered it to Black Laid cardstock. A 1/8" Magic Matter disc was used to trace around the image.
I put a Solar White piece of cardstock through the Cuttlebug using one of their embossing folders. I mounted the butterfly layer to it and used the next to largest Magic Matter to trace around it. I scored it at the top of the traced image and then folded and cut around the image for the card. The top portion was inserted into a Cuttlebug embossing folder and put through the Cuttlebug. That was mounted to more Black Laid cardstock as a base. I traced around that, again using the 1/8" Magic Matter.
The May Arts Ribbon was woven through the holes, created by the shape of the butterfly wings, and then the Bow-Easy was used to create the bow. Mark Richards Black Onyx rhinestone stickers were added to give the card a flow from upper left to bottom lower right.
The image was mounted in the center using 3D pop dots. Extra butterflies were stamped and mounted for a 3D effect. After painting with Twinks, I rubbed the tops with Dorland's Wax. It seals it so I can use Stickles of different colors and they don't absorb the watercolor underneath to change the color.
