Penny Black

Coloured glitter butterflies….

I saw this technique being used by Laurel Beard and Julie Ebersole. So I thought I will give this technique a try. The Butterflies die from the new release Penny Black was perfect for this technique. I also had this stained glass look which I wanted to achieve.

And here is my card using the die.

I die cut the butterflies die using black cardstock, then adhered the die on an adhesive sheet. I poured and burnished white fine glitter in the negative space. Dusted off the excess. Now I coloured the glitter with alcohol markers. Julie and Laurel used copics to colour. I am afraid to use Copic markers. I finally have a good collection and I did not want to ruin the markers.So I used Stampin’ Up alcohol markers instead. The markers are still good to use and the colours turned out lovely.

I then removed the adhesive sheeting and adhered the coloured butterflies die to white cardstock. Trimmed the excess, I wanted this to be the highlight of my card, so I kept everything else simple.

The sentiment is from Smile All Day stamp set also from Penny Black newly released.
Love love the colours, glitter and gives the stained glass look. Thanks Laurel and Julie for sharing this fun technique.
