Butterfly Themed Greetings

Tags:
butterfly, greetings,

Take your quilling further and try husking with these pretty cards designed by Elizabeth Moad. This alternative technique is when looped shapes are made by wrapping thin paper strips around pins secured into a foam board. You press the pins into position first, which allows identical looped shapes to be formed repeatedly. It’s great if you’re making symmetrical items such as the wings for the butterflies seen here. Quilled coils are inserted into the loops and gem stones added on top of them to give a super sparkly finish.

Glass Painting

Outliner acts as a barrier to stop glass paints from running. The technique is simple and rather like icing a cake! Before you apply it to your project, test the out-liner on scrap paper, squeezing the tube gently until the leading flows smoothly. Hold the tip just above the surface and practice drawing a few shapes and lines. When you feel comfortable with the technique, work directly onto your project

In the wings

Sharon Bennett’s delicate designs will have you all in a flutter

These painted creations are the perfect anecdote for winter blues; the refreshing splashes of pastel shades are enough to brighten anyone’s day! Sharon’s pretty sketches adorn each make, and although they look impossibly intricate to draw freehand, we hold the secret to replicating them like-for-like… templates! She’s drawn easy-to-copy butterfly and flower designs especially for CB readers, so all that’s left to do is trace and add some colour. If there’s one thing us crafters are good at, it’s colouring in!

Try this

Don’t have watercolour paints? Use ProMarkers to create the same effect by drawing lines across the width of a butterfly and letting each colour bleed into the next.
