Cardmaking with Glass painting (birthday wishes)

 Butterfly Happy Birthday Card

This card I have made was more of an experiment than anything else. I wanted to make an aperture and have my glass painted butterfly topper overlaying the aperture in some way. I created the Butterfly topper using colours 350 Fuschia and 126 White Opaque, each colour used on a different size of butterfly. I used Gold Relief paint as the outline of the topper. I painted the toper with the glass paint thickly, straight from the jar. As you can see the glass paint colours are extremely rich and pure.

 I worked the butterfly with some yummy delicate papermania red hot papers and created an aperture allowing to see the patterned papers on the inside of the card, giving more interest. I overlay the butterfly on the layered rectangle sitting over the aperture creating the effect of the glass painted butterfly, as if about to flutter off the card. I used lots of pretty paper flowers and a couple of die cut sentiments also and decorated the inside. You could also, though, use acrylic paints to create this butterfly if you would like or any other painting medium.
