Ombre butterfly


The power was out earlier, thank goodness it's during the day, and as long as there is daylight I can craft!!  Luckily the power came back soon, otherwise I couldn't use my heat gun!!  LOL

For this CAS card, I first stamp the butterfly from the Hero Arts Greetings set in an ombre fashion on white card stock.  Next I used coloring pencils to add in a tiny bit of details, and then hand cut it.  The following step is to clear heat emboss the entire butterfly.  

On a separate piece of 4.25 by 5.5 inch white card panel I stamped the leaves from Altenew Warm Wishes set in Spun Sugar, and then the sentiment in black.  Then with my stylus and trimmer I scored the pancel from backside 1/4 inch from the edge all around to create the embossed frame.  

Lastly I glue the panel to a white card base, and adhered the butterfly.

Here's a closer look, you could see the shine from the clear embossing.

This is so beautiful and the shine from the heat embossing is incredible!! Love the colours you used, they go with the photo so perfectly. As does the scoring around the card front, its such a simple but cool technique and one I never think about doing. Its a wonderful card and I'm so glad you joined us at TIME OUT!
