Sit Down Again

Well, I don't have another card yet, almost though. I did win a some Blog Candy at Ink Stain Survivor's blog. If you haven't been there you are really missing some great art. Jane also sent me a beautiful card with the candy and here it is:

I tried to get a good picture and it wasn't easy. The cardstock is Dark Navy. She stamped a Butterfly randomly with I think Opalite Orchid Ice. It is lovely IRL. The background for the image was done first and I don't know what inks she used but as you can see they are stunning. She stamped the image with a Deep Navy pigment ink and then Clear Embossing Powder. Then she did the edges with the same Navy ink pad and then the Clear EP again. She added beautiful AB Purple rhinestones. It was mounted with Dimensional glue dots. This really is a work of art. Thank you Jane. I will treasure it.

Next but not least, the Candy. I recived this CD for Artylicious Filigree Fusion by Glenda Waterworth:

Aw bless you Shirly, I am so glad you liked the card and I do hope you have fun with that CD - I love the designs on it.

Well done on background you are right when you say it is opalite ink. However the main floral image was heat embossed using Cosmic Shimmers EP which, like the opalite inks, has an interference effect so you get that lovely colour change effect. With that one, which is called Denim Lilac Aurora, it should go from purple to blue dark blue depending on how the light catches it.
