Stamped Butterfly with Palette Noir Black ink on a 3.75″ x 5.25″ of Whisper White card stock.
Colored in the image with a Prismacolor Sky Blue Light marker.
Darkened the middle of the image with a Faber Castell Black marker.
Colored over the entire image with a Versamark marker, by coloring the light parts first and then going to the dark parts.
Heat embossed the image using clear embossing powder and a heat gun.
Over Stamped butterfly image with the Flower image using Craft Going Gray ink.
Note: if you don’t have craft ink you can load your stamp first with Versamark then your Classic ink before stamping. The Versamark will let your embossing powder stick to your image.
Heat embossed the image with clear embossing powder and a heat gun.
Colored in the flower using an Aqua Painter and Barely Banana ink.
Note: While your ink pad is closed you can squeeze the lid down on the pad to create a little pool of ink on the lid in which to water color with.
Added some Going Gray ink to the top half of the flower.
Colored the entire flower with Versamark marker.
Heat embossed it with clear embossing powder and a heat gun.
Used the Barely Banana ink pad directly on the card stock, covering all of the it.
Sponged More Mustard ink on ramdomly, but leaving the lower left corner light.
Sponged on Really Rust ink.
Sponged on some Baroque Burgundy ink.
Sponged a little black ink to get really dark under the butterfly and at the top of the card stock.
Added a Going Gray marker shadow at the bottom of the flower.
Traced fine line around the bottom of the flower and butterfly to create some depth.
Added some Faber Castell Yellow marker on top of the embossed flower to punch up the color a bit.
Heated the embossing powder on the flower to melt the marker in a bit.
Assembled card and added ribbon, brads and punched photo corners.
Here the card is finished measuring 5″ x 6.5″.
Thanks for checking out the tutorial today. Why don’t you give emboss resist, resist a try?
