GlitterFree Bling

Today's challenge over at Operation Write Home is glitter free bling.  I thought it was the perfect time to use the new stamps I received free from Our Daily Bread Designs which I won for this card back in December.


This stamp set is called "Faith" and comes with both the sentiment and butterfly image.  To make the butterfly I intended to highlight stand out even more, I colored it with a white gel pen before flooding the entire area with Liquid Glass.  Then, because I wanted to make it sparkle even more, I waited until the Liquid Glass dried, painted it with Create a Shade paint, then covered the whole thing with another layer of Liquid Glass.  (Liquid Glass and Create a Shade paint are products of CTMH.)
The butterfly image at the top of the card was stamped with Versamark, the one on the tab (as well as the sentiment) was stamped with Momento Tuxedo Black then colored with Copics in shades of grey and a light green for the leaves.  I also sponged the edges of the chocolate mat paper with black to make sure the black ink on the image had an answering black on the rest of the card.

Since my gift certificate was for more than the cost of this stamp set, I also got a single Dahlia stamp which I will share with you another time.

Thanks to Our Daily Bread Designs and OWH for their generosity.

Until next time,
Becca

  9. Great job. I wouldn't have thought to use kraft on a blingy card but it works nicely.
