Did you hear? Memory Box has started a monthly challenge! When I had a stamp store they carried MB & I ended up with a nice little collection of dies including the solid butterfly. Recently I got the matching intricate die & butterflies happen to be the theme of the first challenge. The butterflies are inked in Delicata Golden Glitz, so I'll also enter at City Crafter Challenge Blog. I began by using the watercolor smooshing technique with Distress Inks victorian velvet, bundled sage & spun sugar. I softened it with some gesso & then stenciled some paste colored with worn lipstick using the SSS Moroccan Stencil. Hard to see, but there are also gold splatters. The panels are cut with Lil' Inker Stitched Rectangles & the bottom one is watercolored with spun sugar. The sentiment from SSS Warm Wishes is stamped in Delicata Golden Glitz on a double vellum strip. I used little gold stickers to embellish the butterfly & layered it over some gold floss. Finished off with pink sequins--a gift from my sweet, talented friend, Lai-Yoke. I'm also entering the SSS Flickr embossing challenge. Thanks so much for visiting my blog.
