Ruffled Butterfly

I DO love this stamp! It is called Ruffled Butterfly and it is made by Stampendous.

I stamped it on watercolor paper using Versafine Onyx Black ink, then colored and blended using my Tombow markers. After coloring I added PearlEx applied with Future Floor wax for sheen and a pearlescent look. After a few moments when it was dry, I applied Crystal Stickles Glitter Glue to the antenna and around the ruffles on the wings. I love the sparkle and dimension you can get from Stickles.

The sentiment is from Penny Black, and the ribbon is by May Arts. I don't know if you can tell from the photo, but this ribbon is gorgeous! The background paper is from a mat stack by DCWV called Pocket full of Posies.

After assembling the card I laid a bead of Crystal Stickles Glitter Glue around the edge of the two main panels.

I hope you all have a happy and safe holiday tomorrow. As for me, I plan to spend my day in the pool! :-)
