Stained Glass Butterfly and Pixie Powders

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

How is your week going? It has been rather wet here though I have managed to get the holiday washing done. We did have a lovely time away and I really enjoyed the book I took away with me (Paper Hearts and Summer Kisses by Carole Matthews) it is a very good read.

Before we went away I had a play with the Butterfly die from the Stained Glass collection by Creative Expressions. When we returned from holiday I made a card with the results of my experiments.


When you use Pixie Powders and Brushos there is always a lot of ink left over. As many of you do, I hate waste so the background piece is made with soaking up the link with a piece of water colour card. It has a lovely sheen that doesn't show in the photo. 


For the background for the die I used Pixie Powders and Brushos to get the colour. Then the piece was covered with some double sided sticky sheet. The black die cut was placed on top. Then I cut the die in various colours and placed pieces into the die cut. It is a great way to use up scraps of paper. Once I was happy the remaining sticky was covered with Micro Beads. The frame was cut with the Double Pierced Rectangle dies by Creative Expressions. 


This die came free with a magazine, I can't remember which,  it has been very useful. 



Enjoy the rest of the week. 


Happy Crafting

This must have been really good fun to make. Great idea to 'mop up' the ink. Beautiful.
