Birthday butterfly

Here I've been having yet more fun colouring die cuts. I began by dipping this Alexandra Renke butterfly in a few puddles of different green Aqua Tint Inks from Spectrum Noir, spritzed it with water and allowed to dry. I then stamped a tiny script stamp from SU (French Foliage) in Frayed Burlap DI, inked the body with Frayed Burlap and went around the edges with some Brilliance Gold Ink. Then I stuck a whole bunch of sequins randomly over it. I die cut the Memory Box (Distressed Baptisia Collage) corner die  from the front panel  and stamped the sentiment also in Frayed Burlap. I had always found it difficult to stamp with Distress Inks, but having a stamping tool like the MISTI means that any gaps can be accurately overstamped and a perfect image achieved.

  1. LOVE this corner die, have just looked at a dozen or so Memory Box outlets for it.
    Is this is one you've have a long time and probably discontinued, I'll give up the ghost.
    But if it's a newer one, please tell me where you found it.
    I only want to own ONE corner die and THIS IS THE ONE. Help!!

  2. This is so pretty and I do love your style. CAS cards are the hardest to do but you make such beautiful creations with your distinctive style.
