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!
