Penny Black, Cupcake and Rosie Dees challenges

Good evening peeps, it's a bit warmer here today but no sign of the sun, I live in hopes flaming June will arrive before 1st July.

I wanted to follow my butterfly theme so had a firm idea of what I wanted to do for this weeks Penny Black challenge which is to use embossing on your project and prepared a piece last night which I ran through the Cuttlebug using old writing folder, spritzed liberally with Glimmer Mists key lime, pineapple and gold, sanded down when dry and added more gold. Then this morning I saw that Rosie Dees challenge was Pink and Lime and Cupcake's a lovely sketch, so time being at a premium, all three have all come together rather well in one project. Think I can let on that this will be my last entry for Rosie Dees as I have been asked to join their DT.

My pink and lime DP is Basic Grey and stamps Penny Black 3864F and 3868J. The butterflies have been stamped using Stayzon timber brown onto acetate and a piece of glittered pink vellum, cut out and layered adding wire antenna and liquid pearls to the thorax. The flowers have been stamped onto the same vellum, cut out and again liquid pearls added. Circles were all cut using nesties.

This card is absolutely gorgeous. Thanks for your comments on my blog. I can see your use of the glimmer mists and they are very similar to the mica pigments when they are suspended in water and sprayed. I just love the beautiful effects you can achieve. I demonstrate for Particraft and we have just started selling a new product which are virtually the same as the glimmer mists-Cosmic Shimmer Misters. Thanks for stopping by my blog.
