|LAYERED BUTTERFLY CARD|
Die cut the number of layers you want from background card - three seems to work well, then chose a stamp large enough to cover them all. (I've used a Kaiser butterfly)
Stack them up, centring each on the one below and stamp the stamp over all layers. (You might need to put a bit of extra pressure on the outer edges as they will be a bit lower than the middle)
Colour in the image if you want to. I've used Tombows( but haven't bothered with shading and blending - this is almost like a guilty admission nowdays but its OK you can just colour in without getting too fancy about it). I've added some highlights with a gold glitter gel pen.
You don't have to add borders but I think it looks best if you do (and it helps hide edges if you don't get your layers super straight when assembling). If you have appropriate dies cut the mats to fit. If you don't, just do what I did, and stick the butterfly layers to the matting (purple) card and cut around with scissors leaving a small border.
Now stick the layers together with foam tape underneath so that each layer is raised about the one below, stick the whole thing to a background card, or scrapbook page or whatever you want to use if for, and you're done.
