Creative Belli Challenge #97

Good morning everyone and welcome to another Creative Belli Challenge!!! The challenge this 2 weeks is somewhere on your card, use some kind of paint....you can use acrylic, crackle paint, Smooch, Shimmerz, Lumiere...the sky is the limit!! Be sure to use something old and forgotten from your stash...the Belli Challenge is all about using your old stuff and forgotten treasures!!!

I created the background with Lumiere. A few drops of Creamy Caramel reinker was added to one bowl and Baja Beeeze reinker to another. Then a tablespoon of Lumiere was added to each bowl and stired with a palette knife. Both colors were then applied to watercolor paper with the palette knife in a random pattern...I just love the shimmery effect!!

The images from See D's Flutter By, Butterfly were stamped with Soft Suede onto Baja Breeze cardstock, colored with a light Baja Breeze wash, cutout, and attached with dimensionals. I added some Stickles to both butterflies and the flower. The pearl flourish, lace, and ribbon finish it off.

Recipe:

Stamps: See D's Flutter By, Butterfly
Paper: Watercolor Paper, Baja Breeze, K&Co. Life's Journey dp
Ink: Baja Breeze, Soft Suede
Accessories: Pearl Flourish, Lumiere, Reinkers, Lace, Ribbon, Dimensionals
