Spread Your Wings!

My post today again features the Large Trailing Butterflies, which did not leave my desk after last Sunday's post!


I have a new love....Scrap Happy Glue!  For my background of my card, I stamped my image in glue and then let it dry.  Once dry, I came back and covered it with Diamond Clear Cool Highlight You're So Fine Glitter!  Then, to bring out the shine, simply buff the images with your finger....your result: a beautiful and subtle background.
Next I stamped and colored my trailing butterflies.  I painted them with Faber Castel Gelatos in Cotton Candy and BlueBerry.  As a final touch, I added a bit of the Silver Metallic Gelatos for a subtle shimmer.  I fussy cut the painted butterflies and attached them with glue and foam tape for dimension.

I stamped the Spread Your Wings sentiment with Stazon ink onto Vellum.  Popped my ribbon on with some One and Only Tape.

Supplies:
Stamps:  The Rubber Cafe' - Large Trailing Butterflies, Spread Your Wings
Paper: Cardstock and Vellum
Ink: Faber-Castell, Gelatos, Stazon- Black
Embellishments: Ribbon
