Butterfly Sparkle



Hello everyone!! It's my turn to host the Technique Lover's challenge on Splitcoast this week and my challenge is to Stamp it, Mask it, Sponge it, and Glitter it up!!!! That's right...we are going to do three techniques in one!!! I just love the look of a sparkly stamped image without coloring surrounded by sponging. Oh, BTW....this is not an April Fools Day joke...LOL!!!

Here are the deets:
1. Stamp an image with lots of clear space on light colored card stock.
2. Mask the image and sponge a darker background color all around the image.
3. Remove the masking and glitter up all or part the image....no coloring allowed!!!
 4. BTW...if you use Stickles for the sparkle you will be adding a little color.

My card features a stamp from Sweet 'n Sassy's  Butterfly Flourish set...it was stamped with Bermuda Bay. The butterflies were masked and the background was sponged with Marigold Morning, Summer Sun, and Pumpkin Pie. The masking was removed and glitter was added ...you can't see it in the picture but it's really there!! The seam binding and button finished it off.

Thanks for stopping by....have a great day and if you want to get inky...come join us for this weeks TLC Challenge on Splitcoast!!!!
