Bling It Up With Glitter And Lavinia!

It's time for the new challenge theme at Lavinia today and this time it's

I thought I would feature the gorgeous 
on both of my DT cards.
Unusually for me I used heat embossing on both cards, clear on black Versafine ink for the first, I then coloured it simply using pink and blue Copics, flicking the colours over each other to add a purplish shade in places. I sponged on a little distress ink to the background and sprinkled Glamour dust onto dots of liquid pearls. I set the image behind a raised aperture with inky stitching giving additional interest. 

The second butterfly was stamped onto vellum and embossed with white foam embossing powder over clear Versamark ink. I sponged pink ink onto the reverse after fussy cutting it out. Glossy Accents was added to the body. I used up some die cut remnants for the rest of the card, adding Glamour Dust to the raised, part circular frame.

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
CK48, Happy Birthday,
MCC, 2 or more die cuts,
TOC11, Celebrate, butterflies,
SOC, Diecuts and punches.

Thanks for stopping by,
