Sparkly Butterfly

We are showcasing Technique Tuesday Products this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used
As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

Yep again I apologise for the rubbish photo but I have to sit to take the photos and I haven't got the light quite right and if I use an artificial light I lose all the dimension on my cards.

I think there's plenty of sparkle on my card to start with I've used the Happy Butterfly die from Technique Tuesday. I placed some double side tape on piece of card and stuck the die cut butterfly do it  and cut out the shape of butterfly. Then scattered the Tim Holtz Distress Spun Sugar glitter over the butterfly, pressed down and shake the rest off.

In hindsight I should have double layered the butterfly and use wet glue in the space to add the glitter to, ordinary double sided tape isn't really strong enough.

I cut a frame using the Simon Says Stamp Stitched rectangles although you can't see the faux stitched but it did give me a nice size frame. I added double sided tape on the card before I ran it through the Big Shot. Again scattered the glitter.

I added the Simon Say Stamp Stacked Hearts, then the frame to my card and added the butterfly with sticky fixers under the wings and really strong thin red double sided glue for its body. To finish some pearls.

My Birthday sentiment came from Birthday Messages but embossed with gold embossing powder, I recommend a dust buddy to stop the powder adhere to places I don't want it to.

So now it's YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting
