While in a blue mood recently (the color – not the emotional state, thank heavens), I went foraging in my Scrap Stash and came up with the following . . .
The top layer of my butterflies is vellum which I ran though an embossing folder before punching out the shapes. This provided the two touches of white I needed for more balance in the layout. I love what an embossing folder does to vellum and I plan to use it on larger pieces in future: the way the design changes from translucent to a crisp chalk white is really beautiful!
