Chabby Chic Acetate Butterfly.

Good evening Fellow Bloggers, Friends and Visitors,

Wow! what a fabulous day of demonstrations by Sue from Imagination Crafts and Lisa and lots of special offers on the Hochanda TV channel.   The new colours of Alchemy Waxes are just stunning, as are the new Starlight Paint colours.      Tonight's card was made for the shows today but unfortunately did not get an airing, so many demos to get through lol!     For this card I have used one of the beautiful new rice papers.   These papers are quite amazing, they look so delicate but are so strong, unlike mulberry paper, they do not tear when wet.   I have also used the gorgeous new Golden Pink Sparkle Medium on acetate.

Fold the white scalloped card down the centre crease line, making an 8"x8" base card on which to work.   Using the rice paper, decide which part of the design you would like on your card front and cut it out, leaving a border of white card showing.   Fix this to the base card, using double sided sticky tape.

Take a piece of white card and the 'butterfly with love' stencil and mask off the border on the stencil, leaving only the main image of the butterfly.     Lay the stencil on the white card and spread the golden pink Sparkle Medium over the large butterfly, using a metal spatula.    Remove the stencil.     Whilst the image is still wet, sprinkle some light blue glitter over the design and leave to dry.

Take some acetate and again, spread the pink Sparkle Medium over the stencil.   Remove the stencil and add some light blue glitter and leave to dry.

When dry, cut out both the butterflies, leaving  tiny border  around the edges,  next to the Sparkle Medium.   Glue the acetate butterfly to the other butterfly, then glue them both to the front of the base card.

Add some silicone glue under each wing to raise them up a little.   Well that's this card finished.   Thanks for stopping by my blog.    I will be back in a few days with another creation for you.   See you then.   Have a wonderful weekend.

                                                                  Love and rainbows,

                                                                  Big hugs   Jennifer xx.
