Preparation for Paper glove making

The latest stitch Club Challenge is with Jennifer Collier. She makes the most amazing 3D constructs from paper and she has designed a vintage glove for the challenge. I am approaching this a little bit differently . I have this lovely French printed paper that I will use for the base and I have stamped some butterflies onto abacca (teabag) paper and coloured them with polychroma pencils. These will be on the back of the hand and I have laminated them onto the paper so the butterflies float on a black and white background of text and they are a bright pop down the side. I did wonder if the polychromas would run with the application of gel medium and it the text would show through the butterflies but neither of those concerns seem to have happened
