Tin Can Butterfly

Today's challenge over at 365 Cards is to include a small item of altered art.  Come over and join in - we have a new challenge every single day!

My altered art addition is the butterfly - I die cut him out of the lid of a can of condensed milk!  It took a few goes through the die cutter but with a bit of wiggling and jiggling got it out eventually.  I played about with some pink sparkle embossing powders, then coloured in around the edges with a brown sharpie pen before covering it in extra thick embossing powder.

I stamped the sentiment and heat embossed in a light pink sparkly powder then redid in a much darker pinky-red colour to get a bit of a shadow effect on the text.  Then went over the top in water colours.  And then stamped over with a Stampin' Up wheel with teeny tiny flowers whilst it was still a bit damp to get it to all merge a bit.

The top pattern was die cut and the bottom pattern was punched with a hole punch and ribbon threaded through.
