This is a semi- finished project on my desk this week, using the Butterfly panel I have used before, but this time done entirely with Angelina fusible fibres. The panel was matted onto black card to give it a little stability. I also wanted to create a shoji screen type panel, and had had in my mind for a while now to do this with mulberry paper and heat embossing. I didn’t take into account the fibrous nature of the paper, which attracted, and held on to, all the embossing powder! So I had to resort to peel-off lines, as I wanted the shiny look of embossing. I then decided the panel looked too plain, so added some flowers in black peel-off in, and spreading over, some of the squares. To add colour I used ordinary pencil crayons, as anything wet, like Promarkers/inks etc, spreads in the fibres. I think I shall try this again, next time using giftwrap type tissue paper- I should be able to emboss that without difficulty.
The various textures give a lovely tactile element to this card.

I also made myself a handful of extra butterflys using the fusible fibres.

Last thing on my desk for this week is a few Inchie
squares, punched from spare pieces of the panel I used in the Birthday card below, covered in Anitas 3D Clear Gloss, with a few Accent beads scattered into the wet medium. I found using an old document pocket to work on made the squares easy to remove – the gel doesn’t stick to it.

  1. That is a lovely card, Shaz, and I do like those butterflies. You cannot have too many butterflies. By the way, thanks for the Christmas card. We must try to do better next year. I did not ask, but did ours get to you in the end. I think we leave the kids out of the loop next year.

  2. Ah Shazzzie, I just adore your work those butterflies are amazing and think the stickers on the mulberry paper looks really ridgy-didge, ie the real deal! well done for innovation, I love it never used the fusible thingy but sounds like I might need to look into it as results are amazing.thanks for sharing,Shaz in in Oz.x
