Beading Chic

There was a sheet of paper in my stash that had all these illustrations on it: Beading Chic, Knitting Chic, Sewing Chic, Cropping Chic, etc.  I don't know where it came from or who made it.  I cut it all apart and will make cards from each of them.  This is the first one.

Butterfly Die

I used this Penny Black die three different ways.
  1. For this one I used Tim Holtz distress ink and did a sponged mix of pastel colours on a white background. I cut the butterfly die twice, using gold and white glitter paper. I used the gold for the outline and filled it in with the white.
  2. I used Ranger alcohol inks to make the background and then placed the black diecut on top.
  3. This one was cut out four times - black solid, white glitter, gold glitter and silver glitter, then piece back together.
