Happy Thursday! It is my turn at Exploring Cricut today. I decided to make a sympathy card for one of the women in my bible study. Her son was on a school trip in Thailand and was in a tragic accident. Any prayers for she and her family would be appreciated during this difficult time.
Ok, on to my project. I used Versamark and UTEE (ultra thick embossing powder) to embellish the butterfly.
The blackout feature was used for the butterfly and I heated UTEE on it to give it some texture. The UTEE I used was a blue iridescent that really gave a different color to the paper. On the top layer I used clear embossing powder with Versamark and heated it. This gave both pieces a nice shine.
The sentiment was then embossed with black powder and Versamark. I then used Versamark over the entire sentiment with clear embossing powder. I hadn't done this in awhile and was concerned the black would reheat, but it came out just fine.
When attaching the top layer of the butterfly I only glued the middle section so that the wings would pop up and the underneath would have a nice shadow as well as visibility of the blackout section.
