I hope Spring has arrived wherever you are! Impression Obsession's Challenge this week is Springtime Fun . It's always a happy day when the butterflies arrive in the spring.
The background has been watermarked with Cover A Card - Crumpled Lace CC144 using Tsukineko Versamark, then I sponged Frost WhiteTsukineko All Purpose Ink randomly over ink and around the edges. I embossed Butterfly Kisses B8691 with Versafine Black Onyx.
To create the frosted look of the butterfly I die cut the -Fancy Butterfly DIE059-N twice, once in yellow and once in black. Saving the extra 2 pieces for another project. On the yellow butterfly I sponged Rangers Fired Brick Red Distress Ink, leaving some yellow to show through and sponged on some Frost All Purpose Ink all over it. This created a very soft shimmery frosted look. I attached the black butterfly using a Creative Imaginations Pearl Brad that was a gift from my sweet friend Benzi~Thanks Benz!!! I popped it up over 2 Leafy Branch DIE055-N, linen thread and a Wilton Doily. Adding a ZVA Creative to finish it off.
I have replaced all the Scentsy wax melting pots in my house with Essential Oil Nebulizers because they clean the air of dust particles and make my house smell fabulous at the same time. As a bonus it is far more economical. I bought this Aroma Qube for a friend of mine but it was plain and boring so I prettied it up to match the card. I usually buy my oils HERE, so much cheaper than buying it in a store.
I am also entering this in the following challenges.....
