Cardmaking

Fluttering by to say hi!

Happy Tuesday everyone, how’s your week going?  I’m back with another project painting with pixie powders, this time using pinks and purples.

I heat embossed this butterfly stamp in a few different colours first to see the different effects (using white, silver, clear on black ink and sparkly on black ink).  Then I used pixie powders (aubergine dream, silver dream, purple violet and scarlet mist) to give these butterflies some pretty wings before fussy cutting them out.

The background was made with the same stamp (heat embossed with clear powder) and blending distress oxide (picked raspberry) and distress ink (shaded lilac) and then lightly spritzing it with water.  I followed the sketch from the current fusion card challenge and used a stamp die for the square.

The finishing touches were some nuvo drops in black.  I added some of the background paper along the bottom of the envelope and a butterfly inside the flap of the envelope.

I’m entering this project for two challenges:

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge and

 Fusion Card Challenge.

Thanks so much stopping by and I hope you’ll pop back soon.

  1. Your painted butterflies remind me of the cloisonné necklace I had as a little girl. 🤔 I wonder if my mom still has it somewhere? I’ve not heard of pixie powders. Are they like Perfect Pearls? Your card is just beautiful and reminds me of spring!

    1. Sounds lovely. I’m not sure about perfect pearls as I don’t have any of them. They are very fine powder (mica and dye) that respond to water so you can add them to dry paper and then spray with water and you get beautiful colours. I think maybe like brushos although I haven’t tried them either!
