Yupo, a Die and a Butterfly

Hello Technique Junkie Friends!

Lee Ann here today,   sharing a card using the technique of popping up die pieces from a background die- not sure if there is an actual name for this technique but I love the look of it.  With a few supplies- alcohol ink, Yupo, Technique Junkies Butterfly 2 stamp, and a background die, I created a card with significant Wow factor.  Thinking you need the Butterfly 2 stamp

Who doesn't like a little extra pocket change!?

I started with a piece of Yupo paper and some alcohol inks in pinks, yellows and oranges.  I created a simple striped Yupo panel.
Using a card front sized background die, I die cut from both a white piece of cardstock and the Yupo paper.  So there is an easy way and a hard way to do this.  I chose the hard way.  Yep, pretty much every time!
 I used Press n Seal Wrap to remove the die cuts from the dies and once the pieces were out of the die, I transferred the pieces to another piece of Press n Seal so that I could add adhesive to the back of the pieces I was using.  While still on the Press n Seal so that the placement of the pieces stayed exactly where they were in the die, I adhered them to the card front.
It was a bit of a learning process; in reality, I should have put the adhesive on the backs of the pieces while then were still in the die and then adhere them to the card front.  Next time...
I used this popped up background for my Butterfly 2 that was colored with Copics and fussy cut out.

There were a lot of pieces left from these die cuts; you can see what I did with them on March 1st during the release hop!

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you give this technique a try!
