Sweet Butterfly Card



I am so glad I got a chance to make a few cards this weekend. Still being new I am experimenting with everything. Some things I found I like and others I don't. I'm not 100 percent happy with this card but overall I don't think it turned out too bad. I was so sad because I do not own any shimmerz or stickles and wanted my butterfly to sparkle so bad!!! Does anyone have suggestions on using glitter to cover an entire digi-image like this butterfly?? I don't think it would have the same effect as something like shimmerz but then again I haven't tried it! I want a clear shimmer effect so I could still see my image. Oh and what type of glue would I use?? Thanks in advance for any suggestions...I really appreciate all feedback!

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Sophisticat Challenge#1 - Sketch
Flutter By Wed.#74 - Use a butterfly or fairy and the color pink

Such a pretty card. I must admit I use Kindy Glitz a clear coloured one. When I use glitter I normally use PVA glue as it dries clear. Maybe with fine lines like on the butterful you could just put little bits of glue on the veins with a toothpick.

Hi Stacie, what a beautiful card! Iove all your papers and your butterfly is gorgeous! I agree with Merry above regarding the glitter effects, if using pva try not to add too much as it will warp your image.

Hugs
