I'm still playing with the Vivienne Butterfly die but decided to go totally over the top girly using glitter and pink, not my normal choice of colours by any stretch of the imagination and glitter is my Achilles heel, hate the stuff - love the look!
I decided to use the sellotape technique for the glitter, a quick explanation. Cut out your image, turn it over and apply sellotape or the like, then fussy cut the excess tape off, turn over so sticky side facing up and cover with glitter, hey presto! To finish the butterfly and keep the glitter from shedding everywhere, spray a coat of *sigh - Elnette hairspray because I couldn't find the cheap brand I bought solely for that purpose, to put a positive spin on it... the card smelt divine :)
I will share with you my 'whoops moments'...
Whoops #1 - Cut the embossed background too small because I'm a crafter that refuses to measure anything, despite the fact it would clearly save me time and help to stop all my faffing!
Whoops # 2 - Changed the glue in the my glue gun and rushing to attach the leaves in the bottom left and not paying attention, my glue gun pooped way too much glue out and it become an unsightly blob - argh!
I'm entering this card into Always Fun Challenges as it fits in perfectly with the dry embossing #6 challenge :)
