Who doesn't love the flutter of butterflies? Today I am using the Butterfly stencil that I first dry embossed. Then I used Purple VersaMark Pigment Ink over the design with the stencil still over the paper. Then I removed the stencil and pinched UTEE clear powder over some of the inked image. Once the UTEE is heated, apply a second layer over the image with the stencil back in place. This second application was done with a Navy Blue Pigment ink. Apply the entire image with regular clear embossing powder. For the background I used the new Floral with Dots stencil. I lightly spritzed the cream card stock with alcohol then I embossed it through the Cuttlebug machine with the Rubber Embossing Mat. Finally, I used the vertical Friend stencils which I just colored with the matching pigment ink and created a banner!
