Purple Butterfly with Cosmic Shimmer
I've had to be out and about a lot this week so yesterday was the first day I could sit and do some colouring. This is the card I made with the butterflies I was colouring.
The purple squares were made as one sheet with a mask from a magazine. I used perfect pearls. I have had them so long one pot had gone hard. Once the design was set, I sprayed the whole thing with cosmic shimmer, which allowed the design to run slightly giving a soft blurred effect. The corners were cut with a multiway punch. This was matted onto paper from my stash and then onto a white deckle edged card. I folded the top corner back to reveal more of the lovely paper.
The butterfly is mounted on a jacquard embossed card square which refused to show up properly as I had to use flash. It is coloured with pearlescent paint. A couple of silk flowers and some adhesive gems finish the card.
I'll pop back later to add this to some challenges :)
