Thanks for being there for me

Yesterday's card, the "Make Your Own Fireworks" was the first pull and today's card is the second pull or "ghost print" which are usually my favorites. I am really enjoying mono-printing with my Gel Press® plate directly onto the front of the card base.

I stamped an image on the left side and then re-stamped the butterfly onto a sheet of "run-off paper", you know, the paper where you run your brayer onto after spreading your paint onto the plate. I then covered the butterfly with Faber-Castell Glass Bead Glitter gel to hide the seam, which it did an awesome job doing! 

What seam you ask? Well you can see that the stamp is a "side stamp" and it didn't have a full butterfly, so after stamping the image on my "run-off" paper and cutting it out, I then took a picture of it, reversed the image on my computer and printed it out and voila I had the other side. I then glued them together but you could see the seam so I covered it with the glass bead medium. I don't think you can even tell.
