Spritzer Butterfly Card

I wanted to feature the Spritzers for Stamp Club recently and found a great idea on frenchiestamps.com that uses the butterfly punch as a mask.  I also wanted to teach emboss resist so I combined the two techniques to create this card.

Birthday Butterfly Spritzer Card
We started with Whisper white and heat embossed the Alhambra wheel with clear embossing powder. This was then sponged with Island Indigo over the top.  The butterflies were punched out & placed on Whisper White card stock randomly.  I mixed up Champagne Shimmer paint & Midnight Muse into a spritzer bottle & spritzed all over.  Once the butterflies are moved you get a lovely masked effect.  We then stamped the sentiment and clear embossed it.

A new stamp club is starting in late April, 2013.  If you would like to join these technique classes then please email me or phone 0411113530 to book your place.  These classes will now be held in my purpose built stamp room in my new house (YAY!) in Torquay, Victoria.

Paper:  Whisper White, Island Indigo.
Ink:  Island Indigo, Midnight Muse, Champagne Shimmer Paint.
Cool Tools: Pearls, Stampin' Spritzer, Sponge Dauber, Clear Embossing Powder, Heat tool,  Elegant Butterfly Punch, Bigshot, Finishing Touches Edgelits.

    1. Thanks Lisa. I try to combine a few techniques for stamp club but often forget to provide instructions. At least these posts can be their reminder.
