Sepia Glitter Glass Butterflies for Scrapbooking, Cardmaking, Tag Art, Mini Album, Wedding 
Sepia Glitter Glass Butterflies 

Here are some closeups of detail....
I just love this photo of Chris Lim's, adorable little Cass....
I did my usual,distressed,hand stitched layers. I also did some punch work,tearing & stencil work....
I made the daisy's using coffee filters,& a MFT die cut. I used DA dots for the centers,painted them yellow,then applied glossy accents & micro beads...
This is where I did the stencil work using the crafters workshop stencil "Art is"(6x6). I used Viva (champain) modelling cream. On the Alpha I used picket fence crackle,once the crackle dried I rubbed in brown chalk & inked the edges....


I dipped the leaves in water,then separated the chipboard,I then used a heat gun to dry the leaves,it helps to make them curl up. My next step was to paint the leaves,using green paint & once the paint dried I applied a coat of rock candy crackle. Once the crackle dried I rubbed in some white paint,using my finger (this brings out the cracks & tones down the green)….

A close up of the beautiful Butterfly....
Thank you so much for taking the time to look....Rachelle
