My mother's birthday was last month and she loves butterflies. I had picked up a Martha Stewart metal stencil that I intended to try as an embosser rather than just picking a butterfly and stenciling it. I'm not sure you can tell from the picture that I brayered on some Pretty in Pink ink first and then ran it through the Big Shot. The first time it didn't have such great results - the ink was really blotchy. The brayer caused large drops of ink to form on the stencil. So the second time, after I brayered the ink, I rubbed it around with my finger and the ink droplets became more uniform in size.
SU has a new butterfly punch and stamp set. I picked out the butterfly from the set that matches the punch and colored it with my markers before punching out. Then I daubered the edges with the Rose Red ink. The head is a sticky pearl and the abdomen two rhinestones.
Yes, this did not photograph very well, but IRL it looks much prettier.
