LTSCB Challenge 37 "Let's Fly Away"

Hello and welcome to another challenge on our Love To Scrap Challenge Blog. This bi-weekly theme is "Let's Fly Away" where you need to create a project featuring something that flies. Our sponsors this time around are:

Prize: 7 images of choice to winner

Bugaboo Digi Stamps

and
Prize: 3 images to winner




Here is what I created using images from Bugaboo Digital Stamps:


The base is cardstock. The plaid paper is from Paper Pizazz. The circle is a Memory Box die and is cut out of specialty paper called Shimmer Sheets. It is a very thick paper and has a different consistency than regular paper. It does not die cut easily and I had to hand cut parts of it with scissors and a craft knife. The shiny effect is spectacular though and worth the effort. The other dies that I used on the image and inside mat are from the spellbinders nestabilities decorative labels 8 set.The sentiment was typed on the computer and die cut. I inked the edges with chipped sapphire distress ink and added rhinestones. I popped it using foam tape.

Here is the inside. I spritzed the die cut with a spray I made using water and white Perfect Pearls.

Here are close ups of my Bugaboo images. They are (in order of appearance) Dollar Dragonfly, Rainboot Bugs, and Chubby Butterfly 1. These are adorable images. I colored them using inktense pencils. I added Stickles, 3D Crystal Lacquer, and Wink of Stella for glitter and shine. I attached the bugs on the outside of the card using wire.
