Do you like beautiful butterflies and dragonflies? Then you are going our latest video!
Bev and I have been playing around with the Build a Dragonfly and Classy Butterflies dies. We figured out a fun way to use alcohol inks with glossy cardstock to make your own accents with the dies! These pretty accents are easy to make and will look amazing on your cards and scrapbook pages.
Watch Bev's video for the scoop!

I was so inspired by our video that I made a few cards. These cards feature a slight variation on the butterflies shown in the video.
Here I used alcohol inks to simply add color to a solid butterfly cut from glossy cardstock.
I used it on a card, but imagine using several butterflies like mine to decorate a scrapbook page or the cover of a journal. You could even cut and color several of them and then string them together to make a garland for a party or to decorate your craft space.
And here I used alcohol inks to add color to some intricate butterflies cut with the Classy Butterflies dies rather than solid ones.
Don't they look neat? Want your intricate butterflies to really stand out on your card or scrapbook page? Consider die-cutting some solid bodies from vellum or glitter paper and placing them behind the intricate butterflies.
