FANTASY FILM BUTTERFLY - Charmed Somethings Challenge

Hi there - hope you are enjoying the lovely sunshine. We have had lots of beautiful butterflies in the garden this past few days, so I thought I would show you my card which has a butterfly made from two layers of Fantasy Film - OK so it's not as fabulous as the real thing, but it is a beautiful stamp (part of a set from Elusive Images). It's also great to try something a bit different every now and then! Hope you like it.
The green Bazzill card has been stamped with a Versamark ink pad and the Hero Arts Fancy Swirls background stamp. The useful little "Just for You" stamp is part of the Stamping for Him set by Clare Curd. Heart charm from my stash.
If you have never tried using Fantasy Film do give it a go - it is very easy to use and the Film comes in some fab. colours. Ink up your stamp with black ink, place two or three layers of Film over the upturned stamp, place a layer of vellum (parchment) over the Film, then apply heat for approx. 15 seconds with a dry iron. When the stamped image shows through the vellum you can remove the Film. Repeat with another colour of Film then cut out the two stamped images, and hey presto - it's done! Just apply some coloured glitter for extra bling! Love, Sylvia xxxx

Never had a go with fantasy film, that's the trouble with not having a crafty shop near by! (Hubby says that's a good thing!) Lovely card, just love that butterfly

Oh such a pretty shiny butterfly and beautifully executed! (The technique that is, I'm not casting aspersions that you like killing butterflies!).
Fantasy film will be yet another thing to go on my "I want" stash list that is soo long already.
