Autumn butterfly, or is it a moth!


Hi again, I'm back with another infusions experiment!

This time I spread white texture paste through this butterfly stencil, then sprinkled some infusions powder on.  When it was dry I spritzed it with water, the infusions still reacted and created this autumn coloured background! Hubby thinks it looks more like a moth than a butterfly! Either way I still like it.

The challenge at Happy Little Stampers CAS is watercolour spritz.
(I hope the embossed background is still CAS enough.)


The theme at Uniko Studio is autumn with the option of thanks.

I layered the butterfly panel onto a scrap of chipboard, from the back of a notepad, and added gold rub on paint to the edges.

Using scraps or snippets means I can visit the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.

  5. I love it! Especially the embossed background! What brand is that embossing folder? I'd love to get hold of one. My mother used to ice wedding cakes and she often did this 'Çornelli' work. I'm also in Australia and I love your creations...

    1. Hi Jill, couldn't find an email address for you on google+ so am replying here. The ef is Couture Creations Entangle. I'm pretty sure it's retired. It does look like cornelli work though!

    2. Thanks for the quick reply. I'll hunt around in cyberspace and see if I can get it anywhere. I think my mum would be chuffed if I made her a card with this on it. Thanks again and I look forward to your next Post......
