A little bit of silver, a little bit of sparkle

I feel in love with the Sunday Stamps sketch challenge and had to sit down and play.
I already had this background created with Distress Stains, watercolor paper and a stencil so adding some butterflies seemed like the thing to do.  The chevron pattern is created with a stencil and some Brushed Pewter Distress Stain, that is a metallic ink.  

 The butterflies are stamps with a matching set of dies from Clearly Besotted. I love this set because it includes so many different butterflies.  I stamped each one with white ink and embossed with white embossing powder.  That allowed me to simply color each one with a spritz of water and some more Distress Stain.  Then how about those amazing silver glitter words.  This is a die from Simon Says Stamp and it is amazing it can cut these words out so neatly.  
 Here is the Sunday Stamps sketch.
Plus this works for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge of Sparkle and Shine.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
