How To : Butterfly ATC's

This swap was for YSB, the theme was Butterfly. These are my ATC’s. I really like them they are bright and very shimmery in RL.

Butterfly ATC's Butterfly ATC

I was asked how I made these so I thought I'd put the answer here so you can all share in it.

Firstly I stamped with Versamark.
I have a plastic paint pallet(from the reject store) that has Tim Holtz re-inkers in it also has perfect pearls in some of the colours and I just add water when I need to use the colour. So for the background, I rewet the colours I needed and on a piece of white cardstock did a real wet wash mixing the colours slightly.
Then while that was drying on white cardstock I stamped the butterfly in Versamark, then pounced on perfect pearls. (you can see a vid on how to do this on Tim Hotlz blog) misted it with water to set and then cut it out and added the bling.
Stamped the prase and then added the butterfly to the ATC.
Lots of fun!
