Crafter's Companion ~ Statement Butterfly colored with Spectrum Noir Sparkle Inks

 Welcome back followers,

Today I have a fun project to share with all of you. Using the Spectrum Noir Glitter Ink, I colored the butterfly layers. Lets take a look...

I had a lot of fun with this Statement Butterfly die set from the Sara Signature Beautiful Butterflies Collection. This die set actually is 3 layered but I am only using two layers here because of how well they matched the Nature's Garden Fairy Garden Collection.

In this close up photo you can see a portion of the Spectrum Noir Glitter Ink. The bottom layer of the butterfly is a combination of Cosmo and Amethyst Glitter Inks. I simply used a paint brush dipped in the ink pots and painted it directly onto water color card before die cutting it. NOTE: Make sure you allow the papers to dry before putting them through your electric die cutters. 

For the top layer I used the three Glitter Inks from the Spectrum Noir Perfect Pastels Glitter Inks (Moonstone, Cosmos, and Rose Quartz) to create a lighter multi colored butterfly layer. For the top layer I dripped a few drops of each color onto my glass mat and then simply turned the water color paper upside down ad placed it into the inks on my glass mat. The results are very pretty in these pastels.
