'Bling' in on.

I'm joining in over at Shopping our Stash
for their weekly challenge.
The current one is Stickle Me Elmo 
I found this site thanks to my friend Chris. (Thank you)
All we have to do is use some kind of glitter/sparkle on our project.
How easy is that?
Don't we all love to add some sparkle here & there?
Well I may have gone 'overboard' with the shimmer but
what the heck! I like what the Wink of Stella
and Iridescent Medium brought out.
Also over at The Mod Squad  Barbara & Donna are Hosting
their Bling Challenge. I think I past on both counts.
Taking photos was challenging trying to get
the shimmer to show up.  


I inked up my craft sheet with
Tim Holtz Squeezed Lemonade Abandoned Coral
and Mermaid Lagoon spritzed and then
using an acetate sheet inking my background randomly
till I was happy with the coverage.
I then sprayed that with Iridescent Medium
I cut my butterflies from a Spellbinder die -
the bottom with plain paper and the top
inked the same way as my background.
I completely covered the butterfly with
clear Wink of Stella.
The Hello (Lawn Fawn) was cut twice.
the back one was inked also with
Wink of Stella in gold and the front - clear
which is not showing in the photographs.
Added a few gems to finish.
Thanks for dropping in today. Love reading your comments.

Wow! What an attractive background you got with the colors. Any butterfly would love to be flying over that. Really a CAS card that is amazing too. Thanks for joining us at the Mod Squad Challenge this week. Good luck and hope to see you again.

LOVE the colors you have used here, just stunning. And the way you have included that butterfly in the design is outstanding. GORGEOUS card, as usual!!!

Beautiful colours in the background. It really caught my eye among all the other cards!

Beautiful card Ina and there is never too much pretty glittery-ness (in my opinion)
I have that same hello die...I love seeing people from all over the world (I am in Southern Ontario, close to Niagara Falls, Canada) with the same supplies I have and how they use them!
Thanks for joining in the fun at SHOPPING OUR STASH!
