One last card to wrap up the week - this is a really large butterfly, and I've been wanting to do one for a while. The wings are 4-3/4" across at the widest point - it's huge, and just gorgeous.
Again, I used my MISTI for this technique - that tool has changed the way I stamp, for sure! (And did you know 2 new sizes will be revealed this weekend at the CHA Megashow?) This technique is done with Brusho powders, which usually frightens people whose MISTIs are new... but mine is well loved, worn, and stained, so I feel free to get a little messy in it. :) The stamp is misted with water, then stamped into dry powder on the card... then that's repeated until the powder is all activated. It's not a really clear image, but that adds to the effect. A tutorial is probably in order soon!
Stamps I used: Big Butterfly, Drops 2, What If
For the second card I created a background using Brusho powders on photo paper - I love how vibrant the colors stay! I added a background stamp for texture, and a sweet charm on some wrapped twine.
Stamps I used: Grunge Butterfly, CAC Vintage Honeycomb
