I Can't Believe I'm Back This Quick!

I had no idea where I was going when I inked this image.  I had decided to go back though my stamps and pick out favorites and sell the rest.  Well, so far I have picked out some favorites and this is one of them.  It was made by Sonlight Crafts, Inc.  I tried to do a little research and have been unable to find the company at all.  I love this stamp and it said, "Layer me, please!".

It was stamped in Brilliance Galaxy Gold, some of it as much as 3 times, and I did indeed cut out and layer every piece of it using 1/16" 3D dots.  I painted it first with Twinkling H2O's.  After it was layered, I painted around the edges with the Galaxy Gold using a Niji waterbrush. It dries pretty fast that way.  The butterfly has two miniature cake stamens that I dyed with StazOn Timber Brown. I used Glossy Accents on the body too.

The punched edge matte for the image was done using Martha Stewart's Embroidered Floral Around The Page punches and then the image was added.  I decided to make a 5X6.5" card to use up some surplus card blanks I had been saving, for who knows what! For this, that's what!! So....................

I stamped on Neenah Classic Solar White with Cover-A-CardTM Swirls, ran that through my Cuttlebug with their Seeing Spots folder, painted the dots with shades of Twinks Moss Green, and mounted the image on top using 1/8" 3D dots.

That was layered onto Classic Crest Laid Solar White cardstock.  If you click on it you might be able to see the tooth "embossed" it has.  The left border was punched for effect and then a piece of leftover matching green cardstock was placed under it. The top, bottom, and left hand sides were faux stitched with a Galaxy Emerald pen.

Next I made a label for it by using the Embroidered Floral Corner punch.  I just went around making the corner until it looks like you see it.  The Hello is discontinued from Rubber Stamp TapestryImpression Obsession has some great word stamp sets HERE.

The embellishments added were 2 and 5MM pearl stickers with Glossy Accents to give them more strength.  The ribbon bow is May Arts tied with a Bow-Easy.  The Stick Pin was created using a Pearl corsage pin with an orange Czech glass heart, 2 faux pearls, and one clear Czech bicone bead.  The end is a gold stick pin clutch held on with additional help from Glossy Accents.

There is a lot going on here and you will either like it or not!!!  LOLOLOL
