Bella Creations Spray Ink Challenge

Hey Peeps, Where did July go and where is summer going !!1 Yikes. Bella Creations, a wonderful blog I joined last month is having a Spray Ink challenge, on which a butterfly must be used , no pastels, mostly tones of greens, blues, browns, golds and yellows. Well if there ever was a custom made challenge for me , this would be it !!!

So out came all the spray inks, the DT wants us to list them all so here goes...

Ranger Adirondack Color Wash Butterscotch, Ranger Perfect Pearls Mist Sunflower sparkle, TA glimmer mist Strawberry Shortcake  and some homemade using Lindy's Stamp Gang mica Lucky Shamrock Green.

I wanted to make a large butterfly so I used a chipboard to cut the shape out on watercolor paper then went to town inking, stamping and spritzing...I embossed with Lindy's two tone desert moon turquoise. It is hard to photograph, but it is gorgeous IRL. Gave him some antenna's and some bling for the body, popped him up on dimensionals.

Used the butterscotch to spray my lace...

 Made the background with the same sprays...mounted it on this paper that reflected the green, blues and blacks...added beads and Voila !!!

You really should come visit The Bella Creations blog; they have many groups and each has it's own monthly challenges with a random draw for goodies...Later...xoxooxo
