Silhouette - Ditzy-Craftymessers Daily Challenge

The DCM Daily Challenge today was to produce  an ATC, Card, Fat Page ...etc with a silhouette.  Here is my take on the challenge.

 ATC Butterfly Cameo

Not the standard silhouette, I choose to make a cameo from a butterfly stamp and embossing powder. The Butterfly image was stamped onto some card and cut out. I recommend leaving a tab of card so that you can hold the cut-out and not burn your fingers with the heat gun. I then pressed the butterfly into a Versamark pad and then some white embossing powder, 3-4 times to build up a base and on the last embossing, as the melted powder is still soft, I pressed the butterfly stamp onto the image again to create the imprint. The oval frame was stamped in Versamark ink and heat-set with some gold embossing powder. I cut the card down to 3.5 x 2.5 inches and there was my ATC.
