Wings and Things

Wings and Things

How to:
1: I used a plain white card for the Base card
2:The 1st card layer (using the Glitter Girls Bookatrix) I used Purple pearlescent card
3. The 2nd layer (using the Glitter Girls Bookatrix) Lilac Card (with white peeloffs)
4: The 4th layer was plain white card was embossed by the grand calibur using the Grand impressabilities Butterfly garden and then stamped/embossed with iridescent embossing powder.
The same technique was applied to the nesties cutouts that the butterflies and 50 are on but this time they were inked with TIM HOLTZ  milled lavender DISTRESS INK first to give a bit of colour to them to make them stand out.

Bling appeal:  I used ribbon, liquid pearls, gems, flat back pearls, faceted beads , sequins (butterflies antenna), glittered numbers.
