Distressed Butterfly


Ok, when I saw this sketch last night I was a little concerned about how I would make this work. I started by figuring I wanted to use some designer paper. So off to my stash I went. I love the Afternoon Tea paper! I used my Coluzzle to cut my ovals. The scalloped one I just went around the outside edge with the corner rounder (guide removed). I used the mat kit to do the piercing. I pierced 3 and skipped 3 all the way around curving as I went. The outside layer is the same size just without the scallop cut away.

The background was first done with bleach and then I used the Close to Cocoa. I did not want the stamp on the bottom to over power the butterfly so I just used the top of the stamp on the bottom edge. The center butterfly has a rhinestone brad from the Pretties Kit and is popped up with a pop up glue dot that is cut in half. I used the rub-ons on the ribbon (another thing I've wanted try do off my list!). I did do some sponging around the Close to Cocoa Oval to give a little more dimension.

Stamps: Sanded Background, Essence of Love
Paper: Afternoon Teas DSP,Close to Cocoa, Groovy Guava,
Ink: Bleach, Close to Cocoa
Accessories: Eastern Elegance Rub-Ons, Pretties Kit, Wide Chocolate Chip Grosgrain, Coluzzle, Mat pack for Piercing, Corner Rounder for scallops, Pop up glue dot
