Glam Butterfly

This card is for today’s Sketch Challenge on SCS. You can see the challenge here ->
The butterfly in this card is sparkly and glittery in real life - I wish I could capture that in the photo… *insert sad face here*
The Sentiment on the inside of the card says: I'll Lean on You, We'll get through this Together.

The Peacock Butterfly was black embossed on white cardstock. The butterfly was then water colored with a Stargazer palette (this stuff is like watercolor Pearl Ex) and this added an overall shimmer on the butterfly. I then went randomly over the butterfly with Stardust Clear pen and for the final glam I added Bling to the wings and antennas.

The card:

This card is gorgeous! I'll bet it's better in person - the glitz just doesn't come through in the photos.
