Butterfly basics waterwash

You know how sometimes, you just want a really gorgeous card, but with out the hassle? This card is totally for you!! 

All you will need is-
* 1/2 of an a4 piece of cardstock as your base card (pool party)
* 2 layering pieces- I used bemuda bay and glimmer paper
* a piece of SU water colour paper
* butterfly basics stamp set (occasions catalog)
*matching butterfly dies, big shot
* chevron embossing folder
*complimentary inks (pool party and bemuda bay) 
*silver embossing powder and heat tool
*adhesives (I used tombo) dimensionals
*Rhinestones and ribbon
Step 1- cut your layered pieces (bermuda bay and glimmer paper in my case) AND your water colour paper
Step 2- wet your water colour paper (you can spritz it, but I just VERY QUICKLY ran it under water.)
Step 3- open your embossing folder, and, starting with your lightest colour, randomly "stamp" the pads over the raised image of the embossing folder. You are inking the embossing folder, as if it was a stamp.
Step4- place your dampened watercolour paper inside. Carefully shut the embossing folder- you don't want your paper to move too much. Press down to ensure a good transfer of ink from folder to paper. 
Step 5. Dry water colour paper with your heat tool.
Step 6- stamp and emboss (using versamark ink and silver embossing powder) the small butterfly from butterfly basics on to your coloured water colour paper. Stamp, and emboss a sentiment.
Step 7- die cut the butterfly out, attach twisted ribbon to the underside of butterfly
Step8- assemble and glue layers. Add die cut butterfly, popping it up with dimensionals.
Step9- add bling
Step10- wonder at your creativeness!!
