A Grateful Heart and a shimmering butterfly



Using up a few scraps. the card is Bordering Blue- long ago retired but I am a blue girl and still love it. I rolled the texture wheel over the blue scrap with blue ink.  The flower is not SU but the colours went well together with the Elegant Eggplant butterfly and the First Edition DSP. To get the shimmering butterfly I mixed a few drops of Elegant Eggplant reinker in the mini spritzer bottle with rubbing alcohol and 4 drops of the shimmer paint and sprayed glossy paper (actually a sheet of photo paper) until it was covered. As the first layer of ink dried I added more layers and the effect was like marble- really pretty. I am sad the shimmer paint is retiring, I love it, a few drops go such a long way. 

The sentiment is from Pursuit of Happiness which I also love. Sometimes scraps come together quickly. The Elegant Butterfly Punch often just ties everything together . Thanks for looking, Lillybet
