Tutorial and My Minds Eye

I created this card using the October sketch from My Minds Eye! Looove their products and thought I would play along with this months card challenge using a mix of products from the Lime Twist and Stella & Rose lines.

I used dies from Cheery Lynn Designs to create the background, blue border, leaves, and butterfly.
Dies used:

Thank you for the wonderful comments on my glass etching.  I created a tutorial for you so you can create your own etching to enjoy!

I cut the die from a piece of scrap vinyl…which I must say it cut beautifully!! I applied the cut vinyl to transfer tape, then very carefully removed the backing….you have to go slow with all the flourishes!

I centered my diecut on the glass and used a flat tool to make sure I got the vinyl down tight with no air bubbles. You don’t want the etching cream to leak under any areas.

Remove the transfer tape and apply the etching cream (I used Armour Etch). Read the instructions and wait the allotted time letting the etching cream work. Rinse off the cream. Remove the vinyl diecut. Admire your handy work!!
