Mojo Monday Sketch #71

Here is the card that was inspired by Julee Tillman's Mojo Monday sketch #71...This is the first time I've ever used vellum on a card. I bought a pack of vellum paper from Hobby Lobby about a year ago and just using it now. I am a real cheapo when it comes to using expensive paper and such so I guess I was just waiting for the right card to use it on. I love how GinaK's butterfly shows through the vellum piece. I sponged the smaller butterflies with only orange and ruby red then I used Aleene's paper glaze to make them more 3D. I was trying for the cracked glass technique on them, but it just wasn't working right. Good thing, the UTEE can be heated up again if your piece doesn't turn out the way you want it to. I don't normally decorate the inside o the card either, but lately I have. I have been brave enough to layer some pieces on the inside of the card to match the outside. I really like how this turned out and this, by far, is one of my most favorite cards.
