Frosted Glass Butterfly Technique and Card

As I get ready for Monday’s Terrific Techniques: Fun with Washi class, I was looking over a card I made recently using the Best of Butterflies stamp set.  (You know, because it was one of my few samples right now that uses washi)

I was playing with Vellum and thought it would be really pretty to create a softly colored butterfly image.  Its super easy to do too!

All you have to do is:

  1. Stamp your image on Vellum using Stazon Ink
  2. Flip over your Vellum paper (so inked side is down) and start coloring using markers. 
    I recommend coloring with your darker color first because the first color you ink will be the top layer you see when you flip over the stamped image.
  3. Cut out your image
  4. Adhere to your card base using a glue dot behind part of your image that is solid black.

And TA-DA!  You have a totally cool looking butterfly!
