Stamping 3D Butterflies

Last week I posted about an unique party banner that I had made for my client. Today, I would like to share a stamping technique that I had experimented while making that banner.

3 layered butterfly
First, I stamped my base image directly onto the paper using the biggest butterfly from Butterfly Wings stamp set. Then I stamped the same image onto a colored cardstock using a multi-shade stamping technique, trimmed the butterfly and sponged it's edges. Next I stamped a smaller butterfly from Find Your Style stamp set onto a white cardstock using the multi-shade stamping technique again, trimmed the butterfly and finally sponged it's edges as well.

Next I sprayed a little water over the top butterfly to bend its edges inward. Used an embossing tool to give that effect. First, I glued the center butterfly by just applying glue dots to its center body and leaving the rest untouched. Using the same method I adhered the top butterfly to the project.

Here is how the finished piece looks like. Notice here that the top butterfly has been stamped on its back as well. This makes it look more like a real butterfly instead of a mere paper butterfly.

I was so amazed by the way it finally turned out. To my satisfaction, what started as an experiment ended as a beautiful piece of art indeed.
