“Make A Wish” Butterfly Doorplate

I remember when Kristin first came out with this beautiful Escutcheon Plates.  They were unique, simple, beautiful, and I had to have them.  Buuuuuuuut I didn’t know what I wanted to do with them.  Until now.

I’ve recently developed a newfound love for dies and my kids got me this Tim Holtz butterfly die with coordinating embossing folders and I’ve never used it.  Until now.

As many of you already know, I also love Relics & Artifacts and will continue using them when I can.  Especially now.

You know what else makes me all sort of giddy?  When friends come out with cool stuff to use.  Like Lynne Moncrieff’s stamps.

Would like to see how I put all of the elements I love together?

Step 1:  Prepare your pieces with gesso.  When gesso dries, use an adhesive and sprinkle glitter onto the plate.

Step 2:  Cut butterfly and emboss with coordinating folder.  Paint with acrylic paint and highlight with Inka Gold metallic rub.

Step 3:  Paint framing element with acrylic paints.

Step 4:  Use the flourish stencil and acrylic paint over the glittered doorplate.

Step 5:  While the doorplate dries, paint the Flora piece with acrylic paint and highlight with a lighter color.

Step 6:  Stamp sentiment and cut works apart.

Step 7:  Chalk the edges of each paper cutout and arrange on doorplate.

Step 8:  Add beading detail.

Simple stuff using elements we all love!
