Intaglio Embellishment

 I'm playing with "I" techniques, I wanted to give the Intaglio technique another try and use it as an embellishment.
Used a die cut to cut out butterfly shapes from thin cardboard packaging. Colored the white side with light blue Distress ink, covered with clear embossing powder (ep) and heat set. When ep cooled, covered surface with VersaMark ink, then clear ep and heat set again. Did a total of 4 layers of ep.
Before the 4th layer of ep, inked a flourish stamp with VersaMark ink, then pressed the stamp into the hot ep of the 4th layer. Left the stamp into the ep until the ep cooled.
Used light purple metallic rub-ons to color the surface and dark purple StazOn ink to color the edges.
 Here's the finished embellishment:
