Good Morning everyone
Today is a card i made for a lovely crafty friend using the aall&create butterfly stamp. Ive made it as a stained glass window effect using acetate and alcohol inks - nightmare to get a decent photo though😀
8x8" cardbase. I first stamped the butterfly on the cardfront and cut around the inside of the outer edge, so i just had a black outline. I then added brusho's to the front in turquoise and lime to give the effect of the sky/grass and blotted it with tissue as i didn't want too dark a colour. I also edged around the outside edge of the butterfly with a grey inktense pencil and water to give a shadow.
On a piece of acetate i stamped the butterfly again with black stazon ink and on the back i coloured it in with alcohol inks, using a little brush to get a more precise placement, before adding the inks i coloured the berries with white paint pen, this ensured they remained white on the front, i added a few highlights using an alcohol marker blending pen - this removes the alcohol inks from the acetate. Then i attached this to the back of the card front, lining it up with the outline and trimming off any excess overhang.
On the front i added a stamped body with glue gel and added glitter glue highlights to some of the flower centers. A Tim holtz chat sticker to finish.
I added a white insert as that helps the colours stay bright but i had the idea that it could all be removed and the butterfly front kept as a window sun catcher with the light shining through if the recipient liked.
Just showing it side on, i inked around the outside edge of the card with black soot & chipped sapphire distress inks
and this one proves it is acetate and a stained glass effect😁 - this is it held up against the window, although in hindsight i could have done that before sticking the card together for a more effective photo - but i never think that far ahead! lol
