Jewelled Butterfly Stamp from Carolines
After I had stamped it I embossed the tiny circles from the back, painted the almond shapes on the front using PCE No: 3 (Pergamano felt tip pen). Then on the back I scribbled with Faber Castell pencil No: 115 (Dark Cadmium Orange) and then spread it with Zest (spreading medium) to an even coat. Then I embossed the painted almond shapes from the back which makes them lighter and 'pop' out.
I just took out the wings without the feelers and body and made my own parchment body which I attached using Perga Glue. I then decorated the body with self adhesive Kanban half pearls (my favourites) to look like a segmented thorax. Then finished off with stamens (from stash) as feelers .
Hope you like it. I had fun making it and perhaps you might like to have a go - it is really very easy. The colour combinations could be endless. I want to stamp it on to rainbow parchment paper to see what effect I get.
