Glossy accents and/or Slate Blue

Got messy today making this card. Decided to make my own Slate Blue colour by mixing black, white and blue acrylic paint together, surprisingly it actually worked, though it looks quite dark & black in the photo - better seen in reality.
I used a mask I got free with a magazine, it didn't turn out like I expected - the paint wad a bit too thick for the pattern using a paint brush, so I used a tiny bit of sponge and dabbed through the mask instead, end result more likd I wanted.

Rooting around in my butterfly drawer, I came acrosss a holographic peel off sticker I received years ago in a swap which fit perfectly in the middle of the design, also used the 4 matching butterflies in the corners.

The butterfly topper is part of a Sizzix die set which I won a few challenges ago. I accidently put a hole through it when i was peeling it away from the die, hence the blue gems.

The only thing I didn't do was the Glossy accents part of the challenge.

  1. I love your slate blue colour and your save with the hole being covered up. We wouldn't have known. Thankyou for fluttering by my butterfy garden. Hugs Mrs A.
