Faux Cloisonné butterflies

Hi everyone! Here is my take on this weeks Freshly Made Sketch. I just got this magazine from Boden in the mail. I've never ordered from them but like to see what kind of textures they have within their pages. This dress really caught my eye and it made me realize that I haven't done anything with the faux cloisonne technique in ages. Here's what came of it.

Butterfly stamp is from Magenta. I stamped it over the catty using Versamark and then decided to go with silver embossing powder instead of the normal gold. I like how it turned out.

I stamped the butterfly again on the blueberry cardstock so that the antenna was present and heat embossed them too.  Sentiment is from My Favorite Things, which I thought worked well with the butterfly theme.

Below is the catty page and how I stamped and embossed the butterflies before fussy cutting them out.

I did use some mini foam tape pieces to pop up the butterflies and the sentiment panel. Overall, really liked how this turned out. Thoughts? Thanks for stopping by!
