“I had a butterfly shaped box that needed some redecoration. To meet the 'Die Cuts' theme I've used dies in a few different ways. The most obvious of course are the butterflies cut using every butterfly die and punch that I possess. Two 'on the edge' dies are used to form a rim around part of the box (with grungeboard in between the paper layers). The raised centre panel is texture paste applied through a die cut. Prior to first gesso coat I placed grungeboard die cuts onto the lid for raised texture. Some border dies feature too.
Lots of buffing with distress inks, gilding paste, glass glitter, crackle, frantage, stamping and heat embossing. Finally added pearls and other bits and bobs to make those wings pretty!”
