O is for One


Hello Everyone! Hope you are all doing great! Just popping in to post this card I created for a few fun challenges ~ Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers where the challenge is to use One color, I chose green,  Visible Image where the challenge is to Make It Sparkle, Stamping Sensations ~ Things with Wings, Vandicrafts' Artistry Challenge ~ Anything Goes, and Scrap It Girl ~ Stencils or Masks.

 The background was created using a Gelli plate, acrylic paints, brayer, plain white cardstock, and a stencil. The butterfly was colored with Distress inks and I added sprinkles of fairy dust glitter to the wings.

 
 
 
 I tried to get a decent photo of the sparkling areas ~ definitely not the best photographer...but it really is quite sparkly :D




Supplies Used:

white cardstock, forest green cardstock, Archival ink, Distress inks, Gelli plate by Gelli Arts, acrylic paints, fairy dust glitter, Swirls stencil by Clear Scraps, stamps from Visible Image ~ Butterfly and Good Luck from the Good Luck Cat Set (I probably have an older version of this set ~ the text is a little different than the one shown on the website).
