hey you! thanks for coming by today. I am sooo excited to share my creations with you today. Hey- I even took tutorial photos, which I dislike doing sooo much, so you know I really am excited and want to show you how to create this gorgeous look.
Isn't this beautiful? Sorry my photos aren't great, it's super dark today with the rain we are getting.
used Alcohol Inks, acetate, Staz-On, some pretty stamps and glitter
paper to make this. Do you have those items? Hopefully you do.
don't think colors are that important for names- because you can use
what you'd like or have, but I used Wild Plum, Mountain Rose, Sunshine
and Stream for my colors on this card.
Here's how. I use packaging acetate- I got a huge sheet from some Cricut Cuttlebug plates and trimmed off the edges.
your image with Staz-on on the acetate. FLIP OVER and use the back for
your inks, or they will take off some of the design.
Decide your colors- this is my second card you will see soon. Then drop ink onto acetate.
a makeup sponge or cotton square to dab the colors in the same color
group- yellow first, then orange. Use a second square to dab the greens.
You have basically covered the acetate all over. Now you can add color with intensity.
you drop colors onto the acetate, they will form puddles with wavy

but don't go too dark or your stamped image will be hard to see.
let it dry. And trim into straight edges with a cutter. I then use
Glue Arts Extreme adhesive squares at each corner to hold the back onto
some glitter paper. Reminisce made mine, I'm sure you can find it by
other manufacturers. Or make your own by adding spray adhesive to
cardstock and glitter the whole thing.
As I was creating the card,
I wanted more dimension. So I stamped the butterfly again, let it dry
and cut it out, gently folded the wings up and attached it over my
Now I'm sorry that my tutorial is not for that card, but here is the card I did make using my tutorial piece.
Here is a close up
The colors I used for this card are Butterscotch, Sunshine, Oregano, and Red Pepper
cards I used black cardstock to back my pieces, then I layered them on
cardboard. I wrapped the top one with twine and a button and the bottom
uses Anna Griffin ribbon and button. The stamps are from Inkadinkado (
bfly and stem) and Hero Arts ( Poppy). The greetings are both stickers
from SRM Press.
thanks for stopping in, I hope you are excited to
try this, the colors are so vibrant and the glitter just makes it all
the more special!
