Study in gold
Sometimes I just like to experiment with different colouring mediums and see what turns out. This is one of those experiments. The end result is a little more shiny than the photograph shows, only the leaves appearing matt.
This image is one of the Pilkington butterflies from Stamps Away. I coloured the leaves using a gold Letraset metallic marker and the flowers using a black Promarker pen and a gold gel pen. This was matted and layered onto gold mirri card and white card. I then edged the design with black peel off edged with gold.
I stamped the butterfly a second time, going over the markings using the Promarker pen. I then covered the white area with a Quickie glue pen and applied gold gilding flakes. After cutting it out I decoupaged it to the design, attaching it with glue gel. Finally I added the greeting.
