Woodware Butterfly Collage

Hi Bloggers.

Francoise Read has shows on Hochanda today (and Phill Martin is continuing with his One Day Special) so I thought I'd share a simple card that I made using one of Francoise's stamps at the demo I did recently at Domino Crafts.

I started by adding Distress Oxides - Fired Brick, Vintage Photo and Fossilized Amber, to a piece of Coconut White Card. I misted a little water into my hand and 'clapped' over my card to create little splats. I blotted with Kitchen Roll.

I made sure that my background was dry. I dusted with an Anti-Static Bag and stamped the Woodware Butterfly Collage using Onyx Black Versafine Ink. I added CS Matt Clear Embossing Powder and heat set.

I edged my piece with Vintage Photo Oxide using a Smoothie. I added highlights and coloured in the butterflies using a Clear Stardust Pen.

I matted onto Black Card using CS Glue and then onto a Coconut White Card blank using CE Mounting Cushion.
