QFTD60 Metallic Butterfly

Congratulations Anne for being crowned the Queen. I'm beginning to catch up on my challenges, just been trying to finish quilt projects.
I chose this love gold embossed butterfly
CARD as my inspiration.

I went to the rubber stamping convention this weekend & stopped by the QKR Stampede booth, they were demonstrating the Fashion Flakes technique. It made me think of getting my flakes out that I've been hoarding through the years in fact, I think I bought these at the QKR Booth years ago. Thanks QKR. Here's their
WEBSITE for great inspiration.

I've been wanting to try Fashion Flakes Metallic Leafing technique so I tried it on the butterfly & sentiment. I used the MS glue pad & stamped the butterfly on SU basic black cs, then used the Fashion Flakes, I pat the flakes with a soft brush then rubbed off the access with a cloth. I then used the heat gun just to set it. I then cut out the butterfly. I did the same thing with the sentiment. I added 3 rust rhinestones to the bottom. I layered the 2nd panel with rust cs. The base of the card is SU basic black cs & well as the 2nd panel. The panel is raised with 3D squares

Things I changed: colors, used Fashion Flakes

Paper:SU basic black cs, rust cs
AccessoriesMS Glue pad, Fashion Flakes, heat gun, 3D squares, scissors
