Mixed Media with Laugh Pear by Lost Coast Designs


Hello Friends!  Happy Monday! :)

A special thank you out to all of you that left me sweet comments on my last project!  I just love reading all of your thoughts :)
It is time again for another challenge with Love To Scrap Challenge Blog!

This week I had the pleasure of working with an image from Lost Coast Designs: Laugh Pear.

Here is my card:

 I decided on a monochrome design had fun with a bit of mixed media this time. 

The image was printed on water color paper.  I used my Distress Inks, Gelatos and Heidi Swap Color Shine to make the background, then colored with Distress Markers.

I punched the butterfly from green vellum and made my own pearls for the body with an Emerald Perlen-Pen.

I used a butterfly stencil and semi-gloss gel medium to add butterflies to the background.  While the gel was still wet, I sprinkled ultra fine glitter over top.

I punched out, shaped and colored the flowers using a McGill punch and shaping tools.  I added micro beads to the centers.

I colored a scrap of lace with Distress stain and added it to the top right corner.

I found this sentiment on Pinterest. What a great encouragement sentiment!... added to the inside.
