Pretty Woman Postcard

Time for a fun project with

This starts with a postcard and some bright acrylic paints added with a foam square. Then I stamped with black archival inks using a Finnabair Clear Stamp - Doorway.

I sponged on Distress Inks to color the Butterflies and then stamped.

The Ornate Flourish was decorated with Micro Beads that were added using Soft Gloss Gel. 

They really don't show up well on the other picture...they're metallic Silver, Brass and Copper and shiny. I finally gave up! If I got them to show shiny, the girls face showed up shiny too...

I used the  Cling stamps Dream On and 
It's Never Too Late sets to stamp the butterflies and the phrase.

The beautiful lady is from Collage Sheet Pretty Women.

Take time to play!
