Donna here today with another favourite butterfly stamp of mine.
What to do:
Use a size 8 manila tag, apply a layer of dark Fresco paint to the entire tag, heat dry. Next scrape a thin layer of Crackle Glaze over the paint (use an old credit card for that) thoroughly heat dry.
Dab a lighter shade of Fresco paint over the glaze using a piece of cut and dry foam, heat dry.
Applying the final layer of paint with a piece of foam makes the cracks more delicate so is better for stamping on, for larger cracks apply with a brush or old credit card.
Now start stamping your images directly on to the tag using more muted tones of Archival inks for the background, in greys and browns.
For the butterfly, stamp the image on a piece of Gelli print scrap paper and fussy cut out, adhere to the tag.
Finishing touches are adding a little black Distress ink around the edges of the tag and then add a Tim Holtz sentiment and number.
Now the problem is to stop myself adding this fab butterfly to everything!
