|Butterfly... you color my world|
Hello and welcome!
Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to check the bottom of this post for a link to my giveaway post that ends July 31st at midnight Alaska time!
Today I have a huge butterfly that sparkles and shimmers with glitter and rainbow color! I sponged the Ranger distress inks through the negative part of a large butterfly stencil. This stencil is awesome because you get both the positive and the negative pieces in heavy plastic to use! After adding the color I left the stencil in place and spread translucent embossing paste over the colors. Then I quickly lifted the stencil and poured on silk micro-fine glitter in "cool diamond" across the paste. I let dry thoroughly before proceeding.
I used a Papertrey Ink sentiment colored with Colorbox ink and added clear sequins with a little Stickles in their middles for added sparkle!
This butterfly has so much dimension with that paste and it all sparkles so much in the sunlight!
