The base is the Wisteria Wonder card stock. For the layer on top, I used a piece of Whisper White card stock. I ran it through the big shot using the Elegant Bouquet impression folder. I did want to add just a hint of color to the flowers. Using my Wisteria Wonder Stampin' Up! marker, I colored the center of the flowers. The greeting is from the stamp set Perfectly Penned and is stamped in Wisteria Wonder ink. Now to the butterflies.
These two little guys are what makes this card so special. I am sure you can see the sparkle on them. Let me show you the larger one.
Believe it or not I used the Silver Shimmer paper to make these. I started by running a piece of Silver Shimmer paper through my big shot using the beautiful butterflies bigz die. This cut out both of my butterflies at the same time. Now I could have attached them and left them silver, but I really wanted some color on them. It is hard to see the Marina Mist color, but hopefully you can see the Wisteria Wonder and Lucky Limeade. You may be asking how did I do this? How did I get the color onto the butterflies? Well it is so easy I just know you will want to try it yourself. I used the ink pads of the colors I wanted and sponges - 1 sponge for each color. I added color to the sponges by rubbing them on the ink pads. Then you simply rub them on the paper and voila', instant color appears. I have seen others add color using aqua painters and ink refills but this way did the job just fine. To get the color to appear darker, you just need to keep adding more color to the paper.
Now everyone knows how I love glitter and shimmer so you can imagine how excited I was to learn this trick. Expect to see it show up again sometime.
Here we are at Friday, the end to another week. I hope all of you have a wonderful and restful weekend. I will return Monday with another share for you. Until then, thanks for dropping in today. See you Monday!
