Stamp Pad Background Technique and Butterflies - Fun Stampers Journey

Slinky Dinks Butterflies and Sentiment
Slice-fetti was a perfect accent to the card.
Love the cute tiny pieces of fruit shaped confetti.
Make Amazing Happen was also put on Shrinky Dink Sheet.

Close-up of the butterflies.
Left was covering in metallic Silks after shrinking.
Right was stamped then colored in with Color Burst Pencils then shrunk.
Both attached with our Craft Glue.

Top Left - Actual Bold Wings butterfly stamp.
Top Right - Details Pro Shears for reference to size
Bottom Left - Butterfly colored in with Color Burst Pencils before shrinking.
Bottom Right - Stamped image left plain before shrinking.

This photo is showing the butterflies after they were shrunk with heating.
I did use our heat gun, but also can be done in the oven.  
Shrinky Dinks shrink to 1/3 of the size of the original image.
I used the frosted sheets, stamped with Black Licorice Ink Pad, and cut
out the butterflies using my Details Pro Sheers.

 Shiny side up after shrinking.

Frosted side up after shrinking.
Personally I prefer the frosted side up, but the choice is yours.

Close-up of finished butterflies.
Top Left One:  I placed drops of Silver, Bronze, and Gold Silks
on the butterfly AFTER it was shrunk.  The Silks do take a bit
to dry, so be patient.
Both butterflies are placed frosted/painted side up on the card. 
Make Amazing Happen was stamped, sponged, and heated.   Then
I added Whip Cream Card Stock to the back so that the
sentiment stood out.
All Slice-fetti, Shrinky Dink Images were attached to 
the card with our Craft Glue.
