Hi there! It's Nichol here with a new video of Waffle Flower's In the Details series!  Today I'll show you how to create this beautiful faux stained glass butterfly and an embossed marbled background!

Watch below or on our YouTube channel.

A layered marble background is the perfect backdrop for a beautiful faux stained glass butterfly accent. I layered shades of gray inks and gold embossing on the smooth white background with the Layering Marble Stamp Set.

A greeting from the Lotus Stamp Set was stamped with black ink directly on the background. Butterfly accents were die cut from a sandwich of gold foil cardstock, stick it, and fun foam using the Pretty Butterflies Dies. The gold foil is the perfect outline for a faux stained glass look.

The dimensional butterflies were adhered to the cards as shown and the open areas filled with Glossy Accents. For a more opaque look, consider filling the openings with colorful Nuvo Crystal drops instead of clear. The cards were finished with a scattering of Nuvo Crystal Drops in Pale Gold, Silver Lining, and Oyster Grey.

Thanks for stopping by!
