Throwback Thursday

Hello,hello and happy Throwback Thursday folks!

In case you didn't know,it is Goodbye Unity week,where the DT will be showcasing some of their favourite Unity stamps as they bid them farewell. You can find all the shops Unity stamps right here in the discontinued section,and you can add UNITY25 in the discount code at checkout for an awesome 25% off any Unity Itty Bitty or larger set.

Today's card is using the butterfly stamp from the gorgeous Life Becoming set. 

I started by stamping the image in Archival onto a watercolour paper square. I spritzed Distress inks onto the butterfly and then misted liberally with water,added some Frantage and heat set it. 

 Then I stamped the image again onto vellum,heat set it and cut it our. Using alcohol inks I carefully coloured the back of the image (the alcohol with shift the black Archival if used on top of the black,so always colour the underside). I swiped the butterfly through some glitter dust and glued the body onto the card.

I hope it inspires you to go have a look at the true versatility of Unity-this type of card would also look awesome with the Itty Bitty dragonfly here

Have a great day!
