So Suzy - Fancy Butterfly

Hi Everyone,

I finally own this wonderful lacy butterfly from So Suzy - it was on my wishlist from the very beginning, but patience pays off...

Of course I HAD to use it!


My stamps supplies:


And that is how I started:


Heat embossed the butterfly with WOW embossing powder onto acetate and colored the back with alcohol inks.


Fussy cut it and added the sentiment to the bottom of my card. Selected the stencil - its on of those beautiful iStencils, some of which you can also get at So Suzy's.




Sponged distress inks onto the stencil using the same colors as for the butterfly.




Propped up the butterfly with thick foam tape


Added Nuvo drops - this is the clear one, called Morning Dew.


I just love how this turned out! Having the light shine through those lacy wings and reflect onto the card stock is magical!


I hope you like it as much as I do!

Oh My Gawd, Oh My Gawd, Oh My Gawd. You think your happy with how this turned...I'm ecstatic. Dear heaven...it's downright fantastic. Such a brilliant idea to use the alcohol inks on the embossed acetate to achieve that ethereal look butterflies always have. Then that multi-colored stencilling to add movement and enhance the already gorgeous butterfly. This amazing card is exactly why I stalk your blog, dear friend.

Oh my word!! This is STUNNING!! I cannot believe you used a heat gun on acetate!! Mine always melts. I thought this was a die cut at first. You did a fabulous job!!

Lisaerica said...

I love the intricacy of that die, Cornelia. I'm glad you showed us what you did because I though the color was a separate piece, not embossed acetate. I need to put that technique in my memory bank. You ended up with the most fabulous card.
