Floral Wings Hostess Stamp Set with Chrystal Effects

Yes, I know, I am late posting today
But sometimes, lots of blocks are put in the way of my usual OCD routines
And Yes, today was one of those days

And rather than wittering on as usual today, I am going to cut straight to the chase

The card I am sharing with you today is another butterfly creation. 
This time I am using one of the new Hostess Stamp Sets, and I had to wait for it to dry before I could photograph it, since I gave the Butterfly the Chrystal Effect treatment that has left this enamelled look to the butterfly


And quite unusually for my, I have also used one of the new Designer Series Paper Stacks, and you will be pleased to know, that rather than the old 5" x 7" stacks, all the new stacks are 6" x 6"
Now this doesn't include the Colour Collection Stacks and the Designer Series Papers,They are still 12" x 12" ..... OK, let that breath out you were holding, and BREATH!!
The stack I have used here is
the PRETTY PETALS Stack

And I went for this beautiful Mint MAcaron Striped Background, and I co-ordinated that with the light floral paper. This I overstamped the wispy leaf stamp using Pear Pizzazz ink
I stamped several of these over the floral paper.

Next, I wrapped a piece of Mint Macaron Dotty Lace Trim around this panel and tied an elegant bow.
The next step was to stamp the sentiment onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock using Tip Top Taupe classic ink Pad, onto a scrap of Whisper White Cardstock. This was punched out using the new new Washi Label Punch .... which I LOVE!
I punched two more of these tags from Tip Top Taupe cardstock and cut each in half (one vertically and the other horizontally.
I then used these pieces to mat (layer) the tag, using tiny amounts of Tombow Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue.

Now for the butterfly
I stamped the butterfly using Calypso Coral Classic Ink Pad onto Whisper White Cardstock, having stamped off some of the ink onto my grid paper (you could use scrap paper)

I then took the small 3 flowered stamp, and inked it up using a combination of Pear Pizzaz & So Saffron Stampin Write Markers, and stamped these onto each of the lower butterfly wings,
Then I changed the stamp for the single small flower, and stamped that using So Saffron Marker in the centre of each of the upper wings.
The next step was to Die Cut the butterfly using the Bold Butterfly Thinlets Dies,
Once the inks had dried, I applied a layer of Chrystal Effects over the front of the butterfly
And finished by adding an In Colour Blossom Accent to the centre of the butterfly. LEave to dry overnight.

Once Dry, use a Stampin Dimensional to mount the butterfly onto a Whisper White Card Base
