Welcome November! I am loving all the fall photo ops these past few weeks! The trees here in New England have been soooooo pretty! I have posted a bunch of pics on my Instagram account if you'd like to check them out!
A new month always means a new challenge on the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge Blog. This month our challenge is TEXTURE!
The Design Team was so lucky this month as we received a TON of product from IndigoBlu. We received a product called Mega-Flake. When used with a special glue, "FlitterGlu" it creates a gilded look on just about any surface. I used a pretty IndigoBlu butterfly stamp, pounced some glue on the stamp and stamped it on heavy white cardstock. Then I sprinkled the mega-flake all over the stamped image, pressed it in with my fingers making sure all the tacky places of the stamped image were covered with the flake. With a special sponge, I scraped off the excess flake and ended up with several gilded butterflies for my cards.
Each butterfly came out different and even though it was quite messy and sticky, I LOVE the results!! Here's some close-ups ...
For this card I used a wood grain card base, texted vellum and beads for the butterfly's body for texture!
For my second card I embossed a kraft card base and used a doily for texture ...
