Stained Glass Butterfly ~ FM208

Hey everyone, it's Friday!  This is my second week as a guest designer at The Friday Mashup for the month of May.  This week's challenge is to create a Mother's Day card and use recycled/upcycled items.  For mine I used a recycled mother-of-pearl button (which I thought was appropriate for Mother's Day!) and I also upcycled packaging tape to make the stained glass look on the butterfly cut-out.
I also used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches 185.

The stained glass technique is so cool and fun....and easy!  It produces some flashy results too! Here's a great video by LeeAnn Greff on how to do the Stained Glass Technique.

I just love all the sparkle this produces!!!!
Be sure to visit the Friday Mashup DT and leave them some blog love!

Thanks for taking a peek!
