Art with Everything

Hello everyone !    I hope you are doing well and enjoying time for creating.    I have a card today that started with 'play' using a piece of water colour paper that I had used for 'mopping' up Dylusions inks from other projects. 


I sprayed the 'mop up' piece with a bit Peacock Dylusions.  Next I blended Peacock Feathers & Picked Raspberry Distress inks over top using Dylusions - Dotted Flowers Stencil.      I stamped Design by Ryn's amazing Water Droplets in a couple of areas and the quote is from Chocolate Baroque's wonderful Artistic Affirmations set.

I looked through my bling stash for something else to add.  I came across a large butterfly charm that I removed from an inexpensive necklace.   I adhered it with super glossy medium and then painted over it using Silks Acrylic Glaze.   Painting the metal was an experiment and I'm happy with how it turned out.    You can see it better on the close up below.



Thanks for stopping by and have a great day !
Shirley

Amazing with the painted metal echoing the colours of your background. I am going to have to hunt that CB set out to use. The water droplets stamping is a lovely complement to the dotwork too.

Love how your "mop up" background has become! Sometimes that works better as you can plan it yourself... And the butterfly is stunning! Warm greetings, Gerrina

Wow...for starting out with a "mop up" piece of paper, this is truly amazing. I love it. It's really beautiful!!!

This is amazing! Love that beautiful butterfly too. Silks Acrylic Glaze is new to me...don't know what that is. I have some of the sprays, but not used them as yet. This inspires me to get a couple out, see if I can do this...Absolutely lovely work of art. TFS

Another stunning card Shirley. Your backgrounds are gorgeous and this one is no exception. I really must order that amazing water droplets stamp. It's so realistic you want to dip your finger in the water, lol! Love how you coloured the pretty butterfly charm.
