On the blogs that I follow regularly I saw a tutorial by Melanie Muenchinger on making a butterfly card using a resist technique. This is the link to the tutorial: http://melaniemuenchinger.blogspot.com/2016/02/video-white-watercolor-splatter-with.html
and this is the project she created:
I used that as inspiration to create a selection of cards using my hand-carved butterfly stamp.
I stamped on watercolor paper with Versamark and embossed with clear powder.
Then I used the ink from Distress pads to watercolor and blend inside the butterflies. When those were dry I made a watercolor wash on the background combining blue and green.
I then took the card to the ironing board and pressed with a hot iron through a plain piece of white paper. This melts the embossing powder which is then absorbed into the paper.
The last step was stamping with a scripture stamp in black ink, trimming and bordering in black.
The card for today has more yellow tones than the others so I gave it a yellow base card.
