Play time!

Good morning everyone.
I have been having a play with my new infusions that I chose as my prize from Paper Artsy.
I used an A4 size glossy card and sprinkled various colours. I the used a gel type medium and brushed it through the colours to get a variagated background. I also used a stencil to add the green leaf effect. I stamped with Memento my new stamp (Paper Artsy HP1301EZ), and then, because it all seemed a little sticky, I clear embossed the whole piece. I stamped the butterfly again on a scrap, coloured with copics, and 3d'd it, adding a little brass piece for the body. I also added a little colour to the flowers, and attached the whole piece to a black card.

Wow - what a beautiful card Glennis - love how you have not only embossed the whole background, but then 3-D'd the butterfly.

This is a frameable work of art, Glennis! Especially 3d-ing that butterfly and clear embossing the whole incredible background. I am envisioning how cool this must look in real life!! Thank you so much for playing in my NBUS Challenge #9! Hugs, Darnell
