Layer It! Challenge @ DCRS
Here is my entry for Week #2 at Die Cuts R Us! It was a "Layer It" Challenge! We had to create a layered embellishment for a LO/card/altered item.
I decided to get my Cricut out and use my new Graphically Speaking cartridge. I cut out all the lettering and the butterflies. I used the Icon and Icon Blackout features to create my butterflies. I then ran the Icon Blackout piece(bottom) of each butterfly through the Big Shot to add some depth with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dot embossing folder and the used chalk ink to show the texture. On the top of the Butterfly, I added Stickles, let that dry and then added the gemstones.
Patterned Papper: Me and My Big Ideas--Tropical Destinations
Brads: Spare Parts
Gemstones: The Paper Studio
Stickles: Fruit Punch, Orange Peel, Eucalyptus
Chalk Ink: VersaMagic--Perfect Plumeria, Key Lime, Oasis Green, Persimmon, Pumpkin Spice
Die Cut Machine: Cricut--Graphically Speaking Cartridge, Big Shot
Embossing Folders: Cuttlebug--Swiss Dot
Hope you enjoy my creation! Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
