MHK Designer Inspiration: Rocky

      This month I would like to show you how easy it is to make dimensional acetate butterflies using MHK Designs Butterfly Wisdom.
      On one A4 sheet of printable acetate I got nine large butterflies, you could get many more if better placed and smaller sizes. Two have been coloured with Alcohol markers which don't appear to react with the printer ink. They have been coloured on the rough, printed side of the acetate so that when turned over to the shiny side any possible marks are hidden.
      One butterfly has been scored down either side of his body and had his wings bent upwards, this is then stuck on top of the other butterfly along the body only.
    The image used is from Easter Blessings, coloured in with watercolour pencils, die cut and shaded with Distress Ink.           The image panel is mounted on a layer of paper from Christmas Past that has been colour adjusted with my photo package.
     Finally the butterfly is stuck on to the image panel using red line tape which is perfect for acetate as it's very strong.
     The card will lay flat inside the envelope making it easy for posting.
     I hope this gives you inspiration to try another way of using MHK Designs images, there really is a lot you can do with them, happy crafting.
