- Smear color onto Whisper White card stock. It's called direct-to-paper inking...just rub your ink pads around on the card stock.
- Now stamp your image over the colored area. I'm using the flower from Peach Blossom (SS-0342).
- Smear Journey Craft Glue over back of image. (I know, I know....lot of smearing going on!) Cover the entire surface with a thin layer - use the spreader on the "bottom" of the glue bottle. Glue to another sheet of card stock.
- Repeat step 3 until you have four layers of card stock glued together with the image on top. If you'd like, you can use Black Licorice as the last piece of card stock.
- Cut out the image, through all four layers of card stock. Don't let it dry first! Gotta cut while it's wet.
- Mold and shape the image with your fingers, giving it a 3D look. Let dry, occasionally re-shaping so it doesn't flatten out.,
- If you used Black Licorice card stock as your back layer, blacken the cut edges with a black sharpie.
- Thin Journey Glaze with a spritz of water and brush on surface of image. Give the piece about 8 or 9 layers of glaze, allowing to dry between each layer.
- If desired, you can add a bit of Sparkle Dust to the last layer of glaze while it's still wet.

|I'm working on this butterfly, too, but I think I like the Peach Blossom better so far!|
