Thank you Happy Heart for your great instructions. Here's the result of my first try...just love this technique. I used versamark on the background then applied Pearl Ex colors that were in the butterfly. Then I used the silver pen to edge the black cs. Love the shimmery look.

Can you tell me what Pearl Ex colors you used? Did you stamp in the black Stazon first, then re-stamp in versamark, or the other way around? Thanks so much for any directions you can give me!

The way I did the butterfly is as follows:
I stamped the butterfly with Stazon on to acetate. I then ran the acetate through xyron machine. I applied the pearl-ex on the sticky side with a small paint brush. I did the butterfly first then brushed over the entire piece with a larger brush in a diagonal direction and that spread the loose powder from the butterfly onto the background. I then filled in with silver on the background.
I used the following colors:
Duo Blue Green
I then put in onto black card stock which makes the colors really show up.
I hope this makes sense and is helpful.
Happy Stampin, Rebecca
