All That Sparkles

Well...I am feeling super proud to be one of the chosen 3 in the last Indigoblu Challenge, so I get to be a guest, showing an inspirational piece on their blog for the current INDIGOBLU challenge which is "ALL THAT SPARKLES"
 It was only back in May 2015 that I first entered an Indigoblu challenge, and then I only had a couple of stamps, now my collection is quite extensive, but I still go back to my absolute favourite... the Flutterby.... well I do have a bit of a Lepidoptera obsession!!!
The theme for my Christmas cards this year was all about recycling, all made with mostly recycled materials, packaging, book pages, old jewellery that I no longer wear...etc, so I think I was still in the same mode when I made this wall hanging, with a piece of corrugated cardboard box, and some acetate from other makes me never want to buy any card ever again!!!! (hang on....who am I
I thoroughly enjoyed making this,  I started by stamping the FLUTTERBY stamp onto acetate with stazon ink, then using double sided adhesive strips I adhered the fabulous WINTER DAWN MEGA FLAKES to the back. The wall hanging is a piece of corrugated packaging, first gessoed, then added texture paste through a stencil, added some blue and pink spray ink, then once dried I added glass beads and silver sprinkles for extra sparkle oh my how it shines in real life!!!! 

I am also entering it in the That's Crafty Anything Goes Challenge
