Uniko Challenge #12 + Bright Butterflies

Hello

Life has just been busy.

I took my 4 +1 to the school production – “Shout” last week. Great production.  Mr M had his name in the programme for designing the back cover which was also used on the back of the production t-shirts.

I have also been busy with the normal running training, swimming, netball and dancing trips. Mr M and Ms S have kept Mum’s taxi busy.

Any way I really wanted to make another card for the Uniko Challenge – I should just make the cut off time!

I have wanted to try this technique for a while.  I purchased the stencil material and Glitter Frosting paste a while ago and only opened them today.

Jennifer McGuire shows how to colour the paste with ink – jennifermcquireink.com post from 22nd July 2014

Before I started I die cut Uniko Bright Butterflies dies in the stencil material.

Then I mixed PTI Enchanted Evening ink and Glitter Frosting Paste (I picked this up from a craft show) on my craft sheet and added to the stencil.

After I removed the stencil

At this point I left it to dry. Not sure how long it took as I had a school meeting to attend – it was dry when I got home.

Now the finished card.

I added a little shimmer paper along the sides and added to some blue card stock.

Some ABS twine and the sentiment from Uniko Fontiments Birthday to finish.

Sorry for the poor quality photos – taken on my phone at night.

Thanks for stopping

Hope to be back soon

Cheers

 Edit; On our way to running training at 6.30 the following morning Ms S needed a card for a friend at school. So glad I had this one finished – it has gone with some chocolates for the friend.

  1. Lovely to see you putting Jennifer’s tutorial into practice like this (isn’t she a great teacher?) You have done an amazing job with your pretty butterflies, Vicki! There are so many wonderful things to try out there in our craft world – you have inspired me to give this technique a try too:)
