I started with a white card size 6"x 7".. I put the Beautiful Butterfly frame central on this to die cut in my machine. this left me with a border for my mine card.

I used Tumbled Glass Ink, and the tiny butterfly flourish stamp around my frame.

Next I have shaded these butterflies.

IMG_4326-crop

the lighter Tumbled glass ink I swooshed across ..the darker Stormy Sky I ponced with the finger dauber, as I wanted a mottled look.

IMG_4328-crop
  You get separate butterfly die in the set, these I have coloured the same way .these will be shaped and arrange onto the the butterfly panel.

 shaped butterflies, I use a foam mat and my scoring tool, just drag from edge to edge and then use the tool along the center press down to make a fold.

Top picture shows my water colour card taped down onto a glass cutting mat, I have sprayed the card ..make sure it is really wet..Bottom photo..I put  small amounts of lilac and green liquid water colour inks on my glass mat, mine are by Rare earth UK company. using a small paint brush I dab onto the wet card as shown.

Ink and salt

Onto the wet card I have sprinkled coarse sea salt..

Bottom photo as it looks when left to dry.
