Faux Cloisonné Butterfly

Welcome - thank you for visiting my blog again.

I recently saw a post on the The Born Doodlers  blog  using a faux cloisonné type technique.  I have basically cased his card.


I started with a magazine illustration that I liked because of the colours and went from there, being careful how I placed the stamp to get some reasonably life-like marking - that was my right brain talking!!



The butterfly stamp I used is a (retired) Layers of Color stamp.  This was also stamped and embossed on the black base, along with the sentiment. After the coloured layers were adhered, a glue and gold glitter trail was added.  


This was mounted over gold paper, and then another layer of the magazine illustration.


A bow was added before the whole was mounted onto the bright orange base.


Thank you for visiting - any comments you may leave are deeply appreciated
May your day be blessed
