On PTI's Make it Monday this week, Danielle Flanders used a technique of just having the edges of a die cut tipped with gold. Have seen many gorgeous cards with leaves tipped in gold, but decided I would do an autumnal butterfly. My friend Cindy had sent me some rice paper which she said was fantastic for watercoloring and I had made some sheets with various distress inks. It really works beautifully and dries very flat no matter how wet it is. Then didn't know what to do with the papers - so die cut a large butterfly and designed from there.
Supplies: PTI "Life is Beautiful" butterfly, Essentials by Ellen "Zipper Panel" and MFT stitched rectangle dies; WRMK vellum and Neenah metallic gold and astroparche cardstock; DMC gold thread; Ranger liquid platinum embossing powder; Distress inks - wild honey, seedless preserves and ripe persimmon
