Welcome to Tutorial Tuesday. Today we have a step by step for enamelled butterflies.

Products Used:


 S5-051 Fanciful Flight

Other Materials Used:

Stampendous Aged Embossing powders or Any colour embossing powders
 Embossing fluid or stamp pad
 Chip board (light weight ) 
 Heat gun  


Step One:

Cut Butter flies from thin chip board.

Step Two:

Dab embossing fluid all over the chip shape.

Step Three:

 Sprinkle embossing powder all over shape. Remove excess.

Step Four:

Heat the powder with a heat gun. Use a skewer, to hold in place and move enamel around, if needed.

Step Five:

Sprinkle a little black embossing powder around the edges, and heat with heat gun, use the skewer to swirl the black into the pink embossing powder.

Step Six:

 Allow to cool, they are quite hot, so don’t burn your fingers. 


You can add glitter or micro beads, when the embossing powder is hot. Use the skewer to cover areas, that have missed a bit of powder If you don’t like the look of the butterfly simple reheat and add more product, or swipe it off with the skewer. There are no mistakes, they all can be fixed. Use the skewer to make swirls and patterns in the enamel. Make a lot up an one time, so you always have them on hand when doing a project. Have fun and experiment.
