Here's another card using the Vertigo Translucent Film, only on this one I have put drops of Copic ink on the backside. They spread out nicely, so all I did was let them dry. The look is somewhat (very loosely) like a Monet painting. The red is poppies, while the violet is grape Hyacinth, with a little crocus thrown in for good measure.
Now for this beautiful Crafty Ann butterfly. I love it, but sent the die back, it took a good 6 runs through my Cb, even with shims and rotating, to get a good cut. That is a little excessive. What a disappointment.
I'll definitely be buying more of this film, this was my last piece. There's at least 3 of the 6 patterns that I want.

Oh this is so interesting Jennifer! I don't think I have seen this technique or anything like this before! I totally see the Poppies, the violet reminds me of a purple ground cover flower, but I don't know the name. Of course I love the butterfly too! But what a shame, six times to cut is waaaay too many! Fabulous card and thank you for sharing your super cool technique!!!

Love the colors from the back of this interesting film. You must have gotten a defective butterfly. I have that one and it cuts perfect every time! I LOVE how you embellished it! I think this is my favorite!
