Hi everyone! Here's a card I made for the Home for the Holidays with Reneabouquets Contest. The purple butterfly is from Reneabouquets. I love the color and sparkle of it.
I painted watercolor paper with green and brown watercolors. Using Prima's Fluttering Flower stencil, I added some texture paste. I put a little Faber-Castell purple watercolor crayon on some of the paste when it was dry. I kept adding more paint of different colors and brands, eventually I had to sponge on a little gesso to lighten some areas.
For the gold I used mica powder and water. There is a fair amount of silver mica powder on the page. I use it all the time.
I used different colors of microbeads and glass glitter. I sprinkled on some Swarovski and other types of crystals. There are stickles in platinum and crystal around the edges.
