Week 570 Butterflies at Allsorts Challenge

Our new theme at Allsorts challenge this week is Butterflies chosen by Helene. 

I got my gelli plate out and made some prints using a butterfly stencil with various acrylic paints and a gold paint. I simply cut out the stenciled image and mounted onto a piece of DP from Craftwork Cards that has more butterflies on it.

For the sentiment - I cut it twice, one from the same DP and then embossed with ultra thick clear powder.

I enjoyed myself so much I made two cards. the background of this one is cut from another print and I used a Lawn Fawn die and then cut a frame from another print.

Little video to show the shine from the gold paint. I was pleased that the sentiment I cut from some gold card was a fairly close match too.
