|Mixed Media Butterfly ♥|
With today's post, you may be wondering if you've already 'been here.' I assure you, this is not the Twilight Zone! In fact, we are doing a 'Re-Hop' on these fabulous Eyes of Beauty and Dreams Collection for Susana Loves Stamps!!! We just LOVE them so much, we wanted to share them again : D
If you've come from Elaine, you are definitely on the right track - yay!!! If you'd like to start at the beginning, hop on over to see Danni.
Here's my card to share with ya: Mariposa Eyes from the Eyes of Dreams Collection.
copic colors I've used to color in this beauty! Hair - E59 E37 E35 E34 YR21 YR20; Skin - E11 E00 E000; Eyes - B24 B23 B21; Lips - V01 V000; Clothing - E57 E55 E53 E51 E50/B28 B24 B23 B21. Her eyes have a 'dollop' of Gloss Gel as well as her lips for shine!
A Walk in the Garden. For this card, the scene was set, so all I had to do was pop in the image and the butterflies! Not every paper has a scene, but there are several and the coordinating papers are so pretty!!!
Don't you just love the butterflies? As the base, I've used a Maya Road chipboard butterfly. Then I gave it a coat of gesso. After that was dry, I mixed together LuminArte' Stargazer (mica) with multi-medium to make paint. I did the same with Snap Dragon (mica) and made more paint : ) To give it even more shimmer, I added a bit more dry mica on top of each color. The multi-medium can be used as a glue, so the mica is stuck on there good and tight! I've tried to rub it off, but it doesn't : ) AND... it's not sticky. This is cool stuff!!!
Although I could have used the multi-medium to glue the butterflies down, I had already adhered the paper layers to the card base with my FAVORITE ScraPerfect Best Glue Ever, so of course I used a drop of that - really, you only need a little. This glue really sticks!!!
