Here I am again with another vellum butterfly for you! This beauty I folded in half & adhered only along the butterfly body. The wings have a natural beautiful curve to them.
Using Versamark Ink & Clear Embossing Powder to stamp the leaf image from the Butterfly Basics set. Heat set the powder. (When it turns shiny & smooth its done.) For this job I like to use my heat gun, but there are a lot of different options for you. Like holding it over the toaster or turning on a stove element & holding it over the heat, or using a hairdryer. I also find it works better to heat from the bottom side of the paper, as there is less risk of overheating & the embossing powder melting right into your paper. You don't want to ruin all your hard work.
Then I lined up my Pool Party, Coastal Cabana & Bermuda Bay Ink pads & used a Brayer to ink the background. I have used sponges which work pretty well, but the brayer does such a nice even job with so little effort. I like to start with the lightest ink & finish with the darkest one. Then use the lightest ink & go over everything one more time. (This only works with ombre color tone inking.)
