Hit and a Miss

Global Design: Bees Birds & Butterflies
As You See It: Sketch

My idea was to foil the butterfly so I cut it out with Silhouette and spread transfer gel on it. Once dry, tried running through laminator with pink foil. It was only foiled in places, so went with plan B and coated the part pink butterfly with versa mark and chunky clear heat embossing. Ran that through laminator with pink foil. Again only part covered, but I quite like the over all effect. The pp is a new embossing folder cut down and colored with copics. Circle tags and sentiment cut on Silhouette. Bottom layered colored with copics and sentiment got versa mark with glitter embossing powder. Pink layer was part dry embossed in herringbone and all mounted on white cs base.

  1. You don’t notice that the butterfly isn’t as you wished it to be and the card is gorgeous. I would never have guessed that the PP was embossed and coloured by you. It looks like a professionally printed piece.

  2. Whatever flaws the butterfly has in your eyes, it looks fabulous to mine! I like the subtle embossing on the pink base piece and your pretty paper, made by you, is gorgeous. Thank you for joining in with us at As You See It Challenge.

  3. Before I read your post, my first thought was, “That butterfly is a stunner!” so I was surprised that it wasn’t as you wanted it to be! Bonnie, I love all the detail that you put into your projects, including that beautiful pp that you made with an embossing folder and copics! Thanks for playing along with us at As You See It Challenges!
