 The Scrap Fx Chipboard used on this LO:

  • Floral Arrangement (2013008),
  • Blooms(2013010),
  • Flutterby J Rose(2013013),
  • Wordlet,In Bloom(2013032)
  • Gates A ,small(2008243).

I did a small tutorial for you all on the Floral Arrangement.

Here is it what I did…..

I first dipped the chippie in warm soapy water…… this makes it pliable.

I then placed them on a tea towel to absorb the excess water…..

I then very gently separated the chipboard to get the layers, and put them in front of a sunny window to dry (you could also use a heat gun)…..

I then painted on LuminArte, (Evening Primrose)…..

I then added a thick coat of rock candy crackle…….

On the stem part & the body of the butterfly I used Liquid Pearls, (Chestnut).

When the crackle dried I painted on another coat of the Evening Primrose, then inked the edges.

Here are some detail shots….
