I hope you've all had a good week and are looking forward to the weekend. I shall be doing a demonstration for Docrafts again this weekend, This time I shall be at The Range in Bracknell so if any of you are nearby, please pop in.
The most popular demo last weekend was the butterfly card. There is a version of it in this month's Creativity magazine with a full set of instructions.
The card base is A5 landscape to which I've added silver mirri card. The centre layer has been sprayed with Artiste Spritzing inks in blue and green and then lightly splattered with silver Artiste acrylic paint.
I cut a strip of paper from the new Capsule Geometric Mocha collection and added lace and ribbon.
The stamped sentiment was heat embossed in silver.
The butterflies were die-cut with X-cut dies from plain white card. I then inked them with Artiste Pigment ink in blue and heat embossed with silver powder. I repeated this a few times to build up a thick, smooth surface. I then inked around the edges with yellow Artiste Dye ink and heated again.
Next I alternately added blue and gold embossing powders, heating in between each layer.
The butterflies were fixed to the card with foam pads.
The fun thing about this technique is that you can vary which colours you use to get different effects. These butterflies were created with silver, gold and green inks and powders.
Don't forget to visit your local Docrafts stockist to pick up the latest fabulous collections.
Have a great weekend everyone and if you are near Bracknell on Saturday, please pop in to The Range and say hello. I shall be there from 10 am till 4 pm.
