Summer of Color

Happy Saturday everyone! 

Today I want to show you the piece I made for 
Twinkle Twinkles Summer of Color challenge.


Here's the color inspiration...


Does that look yummy or what?

In the close up below you can see that I heat embossed over stamped swirls.

The Gecko Galz image I used is from a freebie I got last September just for being signed up for the Gecko Galz newsletter!

This beauty had feathers in her hat so I decided to make them pop off the page with some real ones! 
Then added the gems, from my stash, because I thought she deserved some bling!

The butterfly was just a plain white die cut I had sitting on my desk,
leftover from another project ages ago.

I tapped it with broken china, peeled paint and dusty concord distress inks, glittered the edges with my favorite platinum stickles and added the pearls, from my stash, for his body. 

Here is a closer look at the butterfly.
I love the look of the tapped ink, 
 it gives it a bit of a textured look.


I also used the dusty concord, broken china and peeled paint distress inks on the distressed edges of all my pieces.


And while I was at it with all those inks I took my lace and dabbed that too!

The pearls on the beauties hat were green (except for the little one).
The rest of the gems were clear, 
I hit them with citrus alcohol ink to make them green.
