Clearly Besotted Teasers | Birthday Butterfly

Hello there and welcome to day two of the Clearly Besotted June 2018 Teasers. Today I have two new sets to share with you - Flutter By Me and Brushed Sentiments. These butterflies are so beautiful and very versatile too. There are both outlines and solid/negative outlines in this set.

I started off by stamping the larger of the two butterflies from the Flutter By Me set on to vellum. I used the design with the outlines. I stamped it using Versmark Ink and applied white detail embossing powder. This was then heat set. I fussy cut the image out with scissors, but there will be dies available. I took a white 5" x 5" card base and stamped the 'happy birthday' sentiment from the new Brushed Sentiments set with black ink on to the front panel.
I die cut three rectangles from the SSS Stitched Rectangles die set from watercolour paper. Using an ink blending tool, I applied Wilted Violet Distress Oxide Ink on to the panels. I added darker colour at the bottom, moving to lighter at the top. These were added to the card with foam tape. I then added the butterfly on top with little dots of Multi Medium Matte glue.
