Butterfly and Flowers Card

This image was scanned from a book of victorian printers ornaments. I made two digital stamps from it. One with both the butterfly and flower, and one with just the butterfly, and printed them both out. The flowers and leaves were colored with Copics. The butterflies' wings were painted with yellow Pearl Ex paint I made, and the body with Twinkling H2Os. I really wanted a deep blue, almost black for the body, but never successfully made one. This was the deepest color I had that was either blue or green. The top butterfly has it's wings lifted up, and both butterflies have a pretty pearl sheen against the flatter colors of the flowers.

The flowers and butterflies were fussy cut with an X-Acto knife and scissors, and mounted dimensionally onto Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles, which was shaded with Brilliance Sky Blue.

Everything was matted with green, pink and gold mirror card, and mounted onto a white card. The pearls are Liquid Pearls.

Beautiful card! An exacto knife! You are brave, the last time I tried cutting something out that way. I cut myself pretty bad, and haven't tried since. One of my weekly crafting buddies, cuts everything out with an exacto knife. We nick named her "The Blade" actually, I think Our crafting friend, Carol, gave her that name. We are all in awe of her skill with it. (and you sure do a great job with it too)
