3 D Glassy Butterflies

twinchies
I promised a quick tutorial on my glassy Butterflies and I am posting it today.
This Techniques is really so easy to so and the results are wonderful!  You will probably already have all the supplies in your stash!  I choose butterflies for this tutorial, but you can use anything you loke for a 3D focal image. 
I used a Nicecrane image Called Butterfly Twinchies, you can use a digital or a stamped and clored image
Wether you use digitals or hand stamps, you will need two sets.
Here I printed two sets of the
 
 
Nest step in creating the 3D glassy butterflies
Dollop on a thick layer of Modge Podge
I use my finger, nothing fancy - just try to get a fairly even coat.
 
 
I purchase my Modge Podge on Amazon, for 29.99 a GALLON free shipping!
 
This takes about two hours to dry
 
Here you can see the butterflies before I fussy cut them.
 
 
The next step requires fussy cutting the focal images.  The Modge Podge give the paper a vinyl feel and makes it very easy to cut.
After cutting the images I edge them with black marker.
 
Here is the card!! The glossy butterflies are hot glued on to the same image on the card layer.
 
 


Here is a side view to help you see the 3D effect.  This is so easy and works so well!
 
I hope you give this a try, it is well worth you time
 
Thanks you for Stopping By!

  3. QUESTION: are you printing on a laser or an ink jet? I would think the Modge Podge would make the ink smear if an ink jet printer is used???? Would love to give this a try, but have an ink jet printer. The butterflies are Gorgeous Ginny!
