Guest Designer

I'm honored to be guest designing for CropStop--a fun anything goes challenge where the only requirement is that you use at least one product from a company carried in their store.  
My card began with the background made on glossy photo paper using Ken Oliver Color Burst powders in Ultramarine Blue, Pthalo Green & Violet.  After it dried I spritzed with Goosebumps which adds shine & texture.
The black frame was made with Spellbinders Classic Squares Large & the sentiment from Impression Obsession Anytime Sentiments was stamped on a vellum strip.  I really love the Memory Box Kaleidoscope Butterfly which I die cut from silver glitter paper & white cardstock.  The matted panel is mounted with fun foam to the black card front.  My sister loves blue, silver & butterflies, so this is for her.  I'm entering ATSM. Thanks so much for stopping by.

  15. Oh swooning here about that celestial blue background - heavenly! The silver flutterby looks right at home there. Hmmm - I think I had some of the goosebumps stuff once upon a year. Where could it be in my ever increasing pile of "must have" stuff?
