All That Glitters

Hello again and welcome to my second post today which is my inspirational piece for the new challenge over at That's Crafty Challenge Blog which has the theme of All That Glitters.
This is also a very special post as this is my 1000th post since I started blogging so keep an eye out for the next post because I think a little candy might be in order to celebrate!

The background for my art panel is actually one of the extra prints I pulled from my Gelli plate for last week's creation on the That's Crafty Blog - here's a pic to show you the 3 extra prints I gained.

I took the piece on top and trimmed it to size, attaching it to a thick grey board panel. I then stamped on the Carabelle Studio mini stamp Collage Horloge with Archival Fern Green ink. I then used first and second generation stamping with the same ink to stamp on the images from the Carabelle Studio Textures avec des chiffres stamp set. You can see the result below.

I made a sparkly butterfly using the Tim Holtz Sissix Alterations Layered Butterfly Die and a piece of the Gelli print paper which I then dry embossed and added further colour too with Picked Raspberry, Fossilised Amber and Salty Ocean Distress inks then heat embossed with crystal embossing powder.
I added this to the panel and finished off with some Tim Holtz Big Chat stickers which I swiped with Crushed Olive Distress ink to blend them in.
Hope you can join in.

Have a good weekend and see you soon!
