Sparkle by Fliss Goodwin



Hello there, I have a card to share this week which I’ve created with what I think is my new favourite die which I can see will lend itself to lots of different style projects so I suspect you’ll be seeing more of it very soon!



Kaisercraft Single Clear Stamps – Confidence, Script
Distress Inks – Black Soot, Broken China, Wild Honey, Embossing Ink




·       Die cut the butterfly from the stamping paper and dry emboss with the texture fade folder that comes with the die – a really clever idea that makes a very realistic butterfly.

·       Paint the butterfly with Twinkling H20 paints – I used blues, greens and golds. You don’t have to be too precise with the painting, as when the paint is dry you need to apply Black Soot Distress ink to the raised areas. It will be a little grungy but that adds to the effect.

·       When the paint and ink is completely dry, apply embossing ink to the raised areas and heat emboss with the clear powder. This gives a lovely gloss to the butterfly.

·       Cut a piece of card slightly smaller than your chosen card blank and ink with the blue and yellow Distress inks using ink applicators. Stamp on the script design with both inks on the corresponding shade.

·       Stamp the sparkle sentiment on the left hand lower corner of the background paper using second generation stamping – I found the second softer image looked better on the soft colouring of the paper.

·       Distress the edges of the paper (I used an emery board) and glue to the card blank then add the butterfly at an angle attaching with a foam pad.
