Butterfly and Bronze
For this card I used a very old cardboard stencil and sponged Versamark ink through onto my card blank. Then with the stencil still in place, I used a cottonwool ball to press mica pearl powders in gold and copper through the stencil. After removing the stencil, I spritzed lightly with water to set the mica powders and give a slightly misty background to the squares.
When it was all dry I stamped the butterfly - an Indigo Blu stamp - and the sentiment - an ancient unmounted one whose origins I can't remember - and coloured them in with water based markers so as not to show through on the inside.
