I stamped the butterfly image on sticky back canvas with Versamark Watermark ink and embossed with white embossing powder then inked the canvas with Shabby Shutters, Pumice Stone distress ink and Ocean Depth VersaMagic Chalk ink then spritzed it with Gold Perfect Pearls. I then mounted the canvas to dark gray cardstock and ran the whole thing through the Cuttlebug using Swiss Dot embossing folder.
I tried to show the sparkle on the blue cardstock from the Gold Perfect Pearls but it is really hard to pick up with the camera.
I didn't really have the right colors of the ColourQ so I used what I thought matched the best. The Ocean Depth came out lighter on the sticky back canvas than what I wanted it to be. Shabby Shutters was used for the Certainly Celery, Pumice Stone for the Going Gray and Ocean depth for Island Indigo. Let me tell you these color challenges are really challenging for me. I don't use gray much in my cardmaking but I have to admit I really like it when I do.
Last night I finished my mixed media project that I promised you all and will post it later.
Not sure if I'm liking how it turned out but I will say it was fun to make something just for me and not really worry too much about how it turns out. It was a fun learning experience and a way to use new products.
So be on the look out for it coming up soon!
