Butterfly Wings...........

I was inspired, to make this tag, by a tag made by Hels Sheridan using this lovely Sizzix die and then  I used it in a workshop and got the ladies to make this card ..........
We coloured the base card of the wings with bright distress inks then added water to a white irridescent mica powder  and painted over the ink , it gave a beautiful finish.

The second butterfly looks to be so like stained glass, what an amazing effect you have achieved.
