This is my card for two challenges, LOVEFEST2013C (Bring On The Bling) and Inspiration Challenge 376 (Limoges Box Collector).
One of the examples given for bling was metallic cardstock. Okay, have some. I was thinking about what I was going to do when I just checked in on the IC. One of the hostess's favorites was a butterfly box - and that nailed it. I've got lots of butterfly "stuff"!
I embosseded Recollections silver foil paper with a Sizzix butterfly ef and colored the embossed image with a combination of alcohol inks and Sharpies. I applied the alcohol ink with a paintbrush and a q-tip for the butterflies, everything else was colored with the Sharpies.
The sentiment is a JustRite stamp that I heat embossed. It and the image panel are matted with black glossy cardstock.
I added Starform black glitter dots to the butterflies' antennae and bodies, and to the four corners of the sentiment panel; the sun and sunrays have transparent glitter dots. This changed the whole feel of the card, it's whimsical and just so darn cute! A photo can't capture all the sparkle - wish y'all could see it IRL -
As always, thanks for looking!
