Stencil Patterns and Butterflies

This is a great layout to show off some of the new stencils from SweetStamps.  The top design is 3x6" Tangrams, center - 3x6" Checker Flowers, bottom - Backsplash.  Ranger Distress Ink was used to sponge the colors.  Over the stop of the stenciling molding paste was applied using the stencil 6x6" Encircled Diamonds and once the paste was dry the stencil was replaced and distress ink was applied for color then sticky powder and Micro Fine Glitter was applied.

Aged White enamel was sprinkled on the edges and popped into the toaster oven to melt.  I found a very small one at Salvation Army and it's much easier to use than a heat gun - no fly away powder!

Glitter paper was created using heat and stick and Micro Fine Glitter, one set of butterflies were cut from the glitter paper and a second set from the purple.  Also four backs (this is a two pieces butterfly set) were cut so the glitter paper pieces could be inlaid into the purple outline and just the opposite was also created and I'll have a second set on hand for another project.   

Other supplies:
Paper: Bazzill - purple, all other papers unknown
Ink: VersaMark for embossing, Ranger Distress Ink - tumbled glass, squeezed lemonade, spun sugar, shaded lilac
Tools: Perfect Layers used for spacing the panels, butterflies -  Flutterby #2
Accessories: unknown gems, Paper Glaze for adhesive, Aleene's tacky glue for butterfly assembly and attaching to the card

This is awesome, I love how you used a variety of stencils and added depth with the paste. What a wonderful background for the butterflies.
