Day 3 Row two: I finished the second row of techniques today. This time dry embossing was the main technique.
The first butterfly looks like leather and the small butterfly has three layers. I love that I was able to use some leftover book pages that I had saved.
On this butterfly I was again able to use up some plastic packaging that I had been saving but had no idea on what I was really going to use it on till today. I punched the butterfly shape then ran it through my cuttlebug in an embossing folder. It turned out gorgeous. I made my flower different from Jennifer's. I first used a purchased white paper flower but didn't like the way it turned out and it was really a bit too big for the butterfly. So I found a smaller flower punch and punched out a flower from white cardstock embossed and inked it up with barn door distress ink. Then I misted it with perfect pearls and water mix.
For the last butterfly the Faux Letterpress Technique was used.I'm not going to lie I had problems with this one. I did it five or six times and always ended up with ink were it wasn't suppose to be. I didn't have the ink Jennifer used but I'm sure distress ink works too. So you can see bits of ink on the raised part. But I loved the Embossed Metal Technique. Again I didn't have Metal Foil Tape but Jennifer gave us several other products to use. I decided to use some old CM silver metallic paper. It worked great. I punched the silver paper with the butterfly punch and ran it through the cuttlebug in an embossing folder. It really came out looking great.
