Butterflies and Stuff!
I have had a busy week and now it is Friday and the weekend is almost here! So I just wanted to share what I have been doing. On Wednesday, I went shopping and found that our little Hobby Lobby had Pearl Ex in stock! Well being the sparkle girl that I am I purchased a few jars and I came home and mixed some up and I have been spraying and painting everything in sight. You know... experimenting..... Well I have to tell you I just love this stuff! Glimmer Mist has always been a staple for me in the past but it is quite expensive when you think about it, so I can now make my own for just pennies! There are videos on YouTube to show you how to mix too....I think you can find a video on anything on YouTube! I seem to be a visual learner so these are so very helpful for me.
The darker butterflies were stamped onto black paper and then embossed with Holographic embossing powder from Ranger. Then I sprayed with my Pearl Ex mist and when that dried I added some Crystal Stickles. The body is a long black bead that I rolled in embossing ink and then embossed with the Holographic powder also. If you want a lighter butterfly then just use white cardstock. I have a friend (Linda Weber) who sent me some crocheted flowers a while ago and I've been hoarding them so I decided to spray one of them with the Blue Green Mist and I think it turned out the prettiest shade with just a little bit of sparkle! This one is going on a card!
Well that's it for me today.....Go forth and enjoy your weekend! Can you believe it....I'm going to mow the grass today, if it doesn't rain! See I told you, Mother Nature has a sense of humor!
