This is the last of four resist butterfly cards that I made. The link to the inspiration tutorial is back on day 1 of the series (Feb 17).
These are the steps I used:
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.
On this layout the bottom butterfly got a smeared wing so I cut it off and trimmed the watercolor paper to a square. This was bordered with a black striped paper over a red patterned paper.
In keeping with the red patterned paper I gave this a red base card.
