The card I'm sharing today is one that I made a while back and just love!
The technique is called embossed resist and cracked glass. With the embossing, I used some of the already embossed papers from last years catalog, rubbed the different colors of ink to reveal the embossing on the background. I then cut it with the butterfly die and did three layers of embossing with the clear embossing powder, rubbing the entire butterfly with the VersaMark pad between layers. After the third layer, I put it in my freezer to cool completely for a little while, then pulled it out and cracked it by bending it a little. It's so fun to watch the "glass" crack! With a chocolate chip pad, I rubbed ink over the top to fill in some of the cracks on it. Such a beautiful technique!
The butterfly body is made with wire and beads strung on it, then bent to give it antennas.
Here's another card using the same cracked glass technique.
It gives that "old fashioned" looked to the cards.
Off to finish laundry and get things settled and back to normal...or as close to normal as I can! Thanks for stopping in today.
