While we're on the subject of butterflies (from my previous tutorial on the Tag Merry-Go-Round album, PART II), I wanted to show you a cute project using the Quick-Cards Butterfly stamp and Close to My Heart LIQUID GLASS. I think Liquid Glass is a MUST HAVE for anyone who enjoys crafting!
I love how the Liquid Glass looks wet and shiny!
I stamped my butterfly image on a piece of Colonial White cardstock and then cut out around it. I used my Close to My Heart WATERCOLOR PENCILS and scribbled around the image, first in yellow, and then in orange. I then used the BLENDING PEN to shade the colors together. I love this soft effect.
Use the Liquid Glass to fill in the area of the wings and body, giving a good coating and being careful not to get air bubbles. If there are air bubbles, you can prick them with a pin and it'll smooth out.
Then adhere your finished design to your card (once the Liquid Glass has dried). It takes about an hour for the LG to dry. I used the DARK CHOCOLATE GROSGRAIN RIBBON on the above card which I absolutely love!
I posted another card where I used the Liquid Glass on a flower photo card on my blog HERE.
Did I tell you that Liquid Glass is also a fabulous glue to use for just about anything, including gems, pearls, ribbon, twine, buttons, and adhering anything to plastic or acetate???
Have fun using your Liquid Glass!
