Butterfly Tag by Siobhan

I decded to have a play with some alcohol inks on Yupo Paper and to have a go at using Tim Holtz's alcohol lift ink pad, I started off with the intention of cutting the butterfly image out, but I loved the effect of it with the splattered background on, so left it as it was, do you find yourself having a plan and having to deviate quite often, but then that's the artistic process for you.

So once I was happy with my background, I used the alcohol lift ink, I stamped this off on some scrap paper, should have done it on a glossy paper to get a better and brighter effect.

You can see the ghost butterfly left behind, I had stamped using the Stamping platform so was able to emboss stamp into the exact same spot, sprinkled wth fine black embossing powder and then heated it very gently as Yupo paper does not like the heat, I still managed to buckle it slightly but decided to go with the flow, I cut it out in a tag shape and added a sentiment and some ribbon.

Hope you like x
