Autumn Butterfly


     This months challenge at The Paper Funday is Anything Goes with an optional twist of Autumn Colours. I love the colours of Autumn so I chose to use them on a butterfly.
     The butterfly was stamped using a John Next Door media plate and a selection of dye based inks, the main body of the silhouette being in yellows with a touch of rusty orange around the outside.
     To get the shimmering flowers the inked image had to completely dry then using the same media plate a stencil was laid on top and a generous layer of Versamark was added to the media plate. This was then stamped on top of the coloured shape and dusted with pearl mica powder. A very light spray of an in-expensive hairspray was used to fix the mica.
     To finish of the image panel some silhouette stamps were used with Versafine black ink and then the sentiment was added.
     To get the same shade of orange as a mat layer a plain white layer was coloured but only around the edge that would be seen, then a black mat layer before going onto a white card blank.
     You will see that the card changes with the angel of view, the mica is always there but when it catches the light it really shines.
     Come along and join us at The Paper Funday with your creations this month, we have lots of inspiration to help get you started.
