Precious Metals

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

How are you all today?

A quick post before I start work, whatever you are doing I hope you have a wonderful day.

I have used IndigoBlu stamps, Flitter Glue and Gilding Flakes.


Step by Step

1. 6 x 6 white square card which I have matted and layered royal blue pearlescent card.
2. Using card from the Flights of Fancy pack I stamped Flower Lace with Flitterglu and then Gilding Flakes.  I then matted and layered onto the blue card.
3. I wrapped cream satin/organza ribbon around both layers before adhering to base card.
4. I stamped the sentiment with Versafine and embossed with gold embossing powder, distressed the background with Vintage photo then matted and layered onto blue card.
5. To finish off I made a double bow and added a heart pearl cabachon, I then added the metal butterfly with pearl trim for the antenna and a pearl to the centre.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
