A diary of both my life and my art work, a reflection of time and growth.

I made this card for today's way to use it challenge, the challenge was to use some rub ons. I love using rub ons on my cards!! I used the rub ons to create a trail behind the butterflies, and as the greeting. I used the sketch from yesterday's challenge.

The butterflies were stamped on vellum, I lined the bodies with rhinestone bling and used liquid peals to accent their wings.

I really love the color combo on this card celery and pomegranante compliment each other perfectly.

A questions was asked the other day about glimmer mist coming out heavy or blotchy.

I spray my glimmer mist in the air and move my card through the mist that way I only get a super fine mist, then I repeat as many times as I need too. I Hope that helps some.

Supplies: Butterfly kisses, papertrey, purely pomegranante, certainly celery,white cs, bali breeze dp, purely pomegranante ink, rub on, liquid pearls ribbon, rhinestone bling, marker.

Oh yeah girl. Now we're talking!! AWESOME card, love the vellum, and liquid pearls are the perfect touch.
Thanks for the glimmer mist tip. I was going to throw 2 NEW bottles away. I just hated it and it also smells. Does yours smell?
I will try the mist in the air...without inhaling it ;)
Thanks for sharing this beautiful card! Janet in nc

Beautiful card!

Just a comment on the Glimmer Mist because I was having the same issues. If you transfer some in to the samller Mini Mister or travel size spray bottles, it seems to come out with a finer mist. I also realized that I was spraying too much on, as the overspray I ended up with was just perfect!
