As I promised, I will be sharing a few more stain glass cards with you all this week. I took time to take 2 of my pieces and put them onto cards. The first one I thought I would share with you today is a butterfly.
I really love this stamp. I wanted to be sure the butterfly would stand out so I chose vivid colors for it to help. The border has to be one of my favorites too. I love the gold and chocolate brown alternating around the border. As you can see I used a corner punch to attach this one to my card. I so have glue dots on positioned on the darker colors to help adhere it, but mostly the corner punch will hold it on. I shaded the outside of the white layer with melon mambo ink which is also the color of the base card.
Here is a little closer picture of the butterfly and flower. I do apologize for the slightly blurry appearance of the picture. I am not a professional photographer so I am trying to learn how to light the area and get the best shot. I also had to remember to turn the flash off. I usually have mine on auto but if the flash goes off when photographing these, the glare of the glitter causes a white spot where the flash reflects. Who knew? Oh well, I hope to get much better over time.
Let me know what you think. Also if there is a technique you would like me to share, drop me a note. Thanks for taking time to look today. See you tomorrow.
