The butterflies were colored with Copic markers: R43,46,59, Y23,35,38, C3
The butterflies were cut out, embossed by lying the image on a folded paper towel and making circles with a large metal ball stylus within the wings area and then the body with a very small ball. I like the dimension it gives the image. They are glued to the card with Aleene’s tacky glue.
The embossing on the two white panels are done with Stampin Up embossing folders, the center/narrow maroon panel is Tim Holtz.
Other tools used are Nestabilities for the scalloped circles, EK Success flower punches and a Cuttlebug Asterisk die for the center circles, Stampin Up word window for punching out the sentiment.
The circles are raised using foam tape.
