Hi there and I hope you are well. All is good here and it’s soon time to get the Christmas rush preparations but in the meantime, I did up a non-holiday card. I thought it worked up very quickly because there’s no colouring, just some stamping and embossing
Using Versamark, I stamped the butterfly onto some heat resistant acrylic and then applied and heated gold embossing powder. When finished, it’s a simple matter of cutting around the embossed edges with a fine scissor. I like the transparent look you get when stamping on the clear acrylic. I’ve used regular acrylic and it works just as well, in fact, you are able to shape the edges while warm and it sets that way. To give dimension to the butterfly, I used some clear adhesive foam pads. To create the small bits around the edges, I dipped the butterfly stamp into the Versamark and randomly stamped and embossed small segments of the wings.
