Purple...

Is one of my favourite colours and the theme at TMTA, so I wanted to find an image that would show it off in all its glory! I have some great stamps from The Queen's Dresser Drawers and felt this butterfly one was apt. I first covered a plain ATC in versamark and then added purple Brightz UTEE to it and heated it, adding more of the powder so I had about four layers making it thick. On the last layer I added some copper EP and heated to melt it into the purple. While it was still hot I stamped into the surface with the stamp and let it cool. I re-stamped the image on acetate in purple ink and cut out the butterfly. I added copper Krylon pen to the edges of the butterfly and over the wording on the background to finish. Hope you like the end result, would love to hear from you all.
