Dandelions and Butterflies

Good morning, today starts a new challenge at Catch the Bug and its a photo challenge.

I chose to use the colour blue and flowers as my inspiration for this card. 
I used Bugaboo's Dandelion Butterflies printed it only once, added stickles and used the sakura glitter pen on the large bubbles. When using the glitter pen on larger surfaces you can see streaks so this time I went over the pen with a copic streaks! I added black liquid pearls and embossed the background. I was in a hurry and didn't take the time to properly check that I had stamped the entire background so am a little disappointed in some of the spotty sections, but it still looks good. Drop on by Catch the Bug and give the challenge a try you could win gorgeous stamps!

I'm entering this into:
Brown Sugar: anything goes
Crafts 4 Eternity: anything goes

Stamps: Bugaboo Dandelion Butterflies (digital), impression Obsession Butterflies (rubber)
Paper: basic black, midnight muse, whisper white
Ink: bashful blue(brayered background)
Other: copics, sakura glitter pen, stickles, liquid pearls, ribbon, pearls

  2. This looks fantastic, Dawn! Beautiful background and sparkle. You did a great job!

  3. It's beautiful. And, if you had not said something, one would think the missed embossed areas was a type of distressed and shabby sheet feel. I need a black fliquid pearl pen.

  4. Gorgeous image and card, Dawn. Your design is striking.
