The challenge at Sweet Stamps for this week is Something New. Well, I had a hayday buying stuff in the store for Santa to bring to me......, so I have lots to choose from!
I had fun with Dylusions sprays for the background, and then I used a stencil and covered the background with Wendy Vecchi Gold Embossing Paste. Oh- IRL this paste is just gorgeous! The paste is flexible, so you can bend the cardstock top to bottom, and it will not crack....... It also picks up the hue from the color of the Dylusions underneath it.
I used Enamel Embossing Powder Royal Sterling on the outer edge of the image. I swiped the cardstock with the antistatic first, and once the purple EP was cooled down, I swiped again with the antistatic and embossed the crown using Micro Gold Enamel EP. It is so hard to see the shimmer from this EP in a picture, so here is another angle.....
I colored the butterfly with Distress Markers Worn Lipstick, Peeled Paint and Chipped Sapphire. I colored and stamped it a 2nd time, fussy cut it and added shimmer with a Stardust Gelly Roll pen.
