Growing In Unity - Day Two

Good morning!

Today I have a super cute card to share using two of my favorite Unity stamps: the butterfly & "because I care" sentiment.

To create the butterflies, I first stamped them onto Stamper's Select cardstock by PTI using Momento Ink. I colored them with Copic markers, then cut them out. I used Tombow glue (in the blue bottle) to cover each butterfly with a thin layer of glue. Then I sprinkled some clear Martha Stewart glitter over each butterfly. I let them dry for about an hour before attaching them to my card.




Here is a close up of the butterflies. I love this technique because the butterflies look like they have been covered in sugar and they are really sparkly.

Check back tomorrow for another project!

Erin.
