Altered Dies #20

Hi and welcome to my blog. I have another altered die card to show you today. I made a fairy using a Cheery Lynn butterfly die for her wings!

                            I started with the butterfly die and cut off the antennas.

I patted my Versa Mark ink pad over the butterfly and added Sparkle N Sprinkle Glisten embossing powder to it and heat set it. Then I adhered the girl image to the die.

Here is a picture of the fairy that shows the sparkle better.

The background was made by inking up the negative flower stamp with Bundled Sage Distress ink then making streaks across the stamp using teal and brown markers then stamping it on cream card stock.

The first butterfly I cut did not cut out all the little pieces so I cut another one. I then had the negative of the 2 butterflies left. Not wanting to throw away that piece I placed washi tape behind them and made a quick card! Here is the result.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful day!

Your little fairy is so pretty, April. Love the background too. Great Washi butterflies with the pretty ribbon too.

I love the little fairy! She is so sweet! I really like the way you did the background stamp with markers. It looks very artsy. The second card is such a bonus. Great job!

Both of these are adorable. So creative to use a butterfly die for her wings. The strips of washi tape behind the negative cut outs looks amazing too.

Oh wow I almost used this stamp for the background today but went with a different one, I just love how you did the background piece, that looks fantastic and I love your butterfly wings for the little fairy, just so cute and like the sparkle you gave to the wings!
The washi tape idea on your second cards is just Beautiful, lovely design!
