Artsy Card -Embossing, Glitter and Twinkling H20's

Today I was going through my older stamps and found one I always liked - an unmounted collage of a woman's face with butterflies. Sorry I can't tell you who makes it as I got it years ago. It's nice to give some of our older stamps some LOVE occasionally!  (wink!)

This card was inspired by the wet embossing challenge at There She Goes, bling challenge at Creative Paint and stickles challenge at Crop Stop. It certainly came out a lot different from what I usually create.

The image is embossed with black detail EP, and coloured with Twinkling H20's - Moss Green, Key Lime, Bashful Blue, Blue Ice, Chiffon Pink, Angelwings, Bronze Medallion, Egyptian Gold, Plum Blossom. I also used a lot of different coloured Stickles glitter on the image to highlite the butterflies, and the lady's eyeshadow - gold, copper, black, turquoise, purple,& diamond. It's too bad I can't get a good pic of the twinkling sheen, but it definitely shows the Stickles glitter!

Patterned Paper is by Basic Grey "Kioshi" layered on gold Bazzill, and Black Bazzill Bling; a metal clip holds some fibres along with gold cord strung with glass beads; and a flower rhinestone scroll on the lady's face. Verse "Imagine" is embossed with Black EP.
