Aged copper frantage butterfly.

Hi everyone, I need a few quick birthday cards so fell back on a design I've used before, but with a new to me frantage embossing enamel, copper! Love the patina.

Here's a closer look.

The butterfly was inked with versamark then sprinkled with the embossing enamel.
You never know how the colouring will come out as it bubbles and melts with the heat gun.

I diecut the base butterfly from vellum and white card. The vellum gives a softer look.

I'm linking up to these challenges:
Simon Says Stamp Monday, add something metallic. I hope the copper embossing is ok.

I've used wet and dry embossing and 2 Memory Box dies-Lunette and Oriel butterflies.

This butterfly is so beautiful. I think frantage enhances your butterfly so much.

I like the frantage copper patina effect, gives a lovely finish softened by the use of vellum, very pretty x
