These are beautiful Anne! Love the two-colour embossing on the gate and the butterfly is gorgeous.
Wonderful, and love the faux epoxy butterfly. TFS
That is one awesome butterfly! He looks great on the gate image too!
Wowsiers! Fantastic tags! I am so glad you shared you fantastic idea to use brillance ink as the base for epoxy! Dah, I love that ink and had not pulled it out!...thanks for more great ideas to try!
So beautiful! Is't it amazing how all Distress Inks go together so well!
Great use of the different techniques.
I'm grinning from ear to ear. I just posted my tags so one of these is going to be mine!!!
They are so beautiful. I love the bright, warm colors. That verdigris EP is one of my favorites, and the faux epoxy butterfly is gorgeous.
Project - TIR Week 2: Embossing Powders

Thinking Inking Revisited (TIR) Week 2: Embossing Powders
* Multi-powder embossing
* Faux epoxy with UTEE
Background made by swirling on three Distress Inks with the blending tool and foam: Tattered Rose (pale pink), Dried Marigold (pale orange), and Tea Dye (soft brown). Then water splotched.
Made faux epoxy butterfly embellishment from 140 lb. watercolor paper. Swirled on Spiced Marmalade (orange) Distress Ink as a base. Then stamped a butterfly from Hero Arts CL115 Designer Butterflies using Tsukineko Brilliance Rocket Red Gold pearlescent ink. Once it was dry I cut it out and then applied 3 or 4 layers of Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel (UTEE). They look sooooo good in real life! Just like real epoxy! I think that the shimmer of the Brilliance pearlescent ink under the UTEE helps it look authentic.
On top of the background, I stamped Hero Arts CG180 Metal Flourish using VersaMark ink. Then I heat embossed with Ranger Antiquities Verdigris and Zing Copper Glitter embossing powders. The twine is dyed using Broken China (aqua blue) Distress Ink which matches the Verdigris embossing powder fairly well.
The second image is a close-up of the faux epoxy butterfly and the shine from the Zing Copper Glitter embossing powder.
