As with previous months I joined in the swap Lindsay Mason organises. This month’s theme was Transformation. I knew a butterfly would have to feature on my cards.
I started with some map book paper and scraped some gesso over it. I then added distress inks.
Once I was happy with the base colour I added distress micro glaze through a Seth Apter stencil and then added more layers of the contrasting colour over the top. This gave a fab effect for the background.
I then stamped the finnabair butterflies onto white cardstock and added some ink lightly over the top and cut them out. I then sewed them into place and then ripped one edge of the background as I like the jagged edge when mounted onto the black.
I then stamped the title of ‘change’ in versamark and heat embossed in white and added that to the card too.
Loved this theme and loved trying out a new technique with the microglaze. Will have to try that one again!
