Summertime, Sparkles and S'more...
The theme for the month of July is Summertime, Sparkles and S'more. So today I used the butterfly. Butterflies are definitely a summertime thing. Catching caterpillars and putting them in a jar with some twigs and leaves. Then waiting for the caterpillar to become a beautiful butterfly. On the card today I used some alcohol inks on acetate with some blending solution, then rubbed a piece of glossy paper over the acetate to transfer the ink onto the glossy paper. Once the glossy paper was dry, I stamped the Petite floral Swirls from Heartfelt Creations with Staz On ink. With the piece of acetate, I cut it down to the size I wanted. I then cut a piece of ScorTape to the same size as the acetate and place it on the acetate. Then I removed the liner from the tape and taped it to a piece of white card stock. The marbling on the acetate just popped!. Then I used black matte paste for the butterfly on the acetate. Once this was dry, I matted it to black paper. Be sure to see more beautiful creations from the Dream Team!
