February 24, 2015 Embossed Illusion Butterfly


I saw a video on how to do this technique and I think it is called Embossed Illusions - the butterflies appear to be flying under the leaves.  This technique is quite easy - stamp leaves in versamark and emboss in white.  Then stamp butterflies in black memento ink - then I put a piece of white scrap paper over the image and rubbed to soak up any black ink that was lingering.  Then sponged my colored ink on the entire image, easy peasy and love the look.  You can wipe the color off the white embossed leaves after sponging.  Punched the butterflies out with SU punch, colored them with Gelatos - popped then up with foam tape, and of course a bit of glitter bling on their wings.   I made this card for Sketch Saturday but entering a few other challenges:
     Sketch Saturday - follow sketch
     Love to Scrap - anything goes
     Party Time Tuesday - anything goes
     Come and Get It - lots of layers
     4 Crafty Chicks - things with wings
