Frosted butterfly


I used a technique called frosted window - a tutorial by Splitcoaststampers - by stamping the butterfly on the card, and also onto vellum; then  colouring the card and the back of the vellum with Reno pens.

Because it called for a foam tape layer I decided to go the whole hog and turn it into a shaker card as well, though the frosting of the vellum gives the sequins and stars a gentler, more subtle sparkle. 
The oval frame  is diecut from glitter card and it really sparkles but I can't get it to show up in a photo.











Stamp: Hampton Art, coloured with Reno Pens
Wish die: Sizzix
2 oval dies: Spellbinder
EF: Cuttlebug
Various sequins and stars
