Painted opal butterflies.


Hi everyone, I've been playing with some new to me art alchemy opal magic paint.
It's so shimmery, and hard to photograph!.

I wanted to play along in the latest challenge at Scrapbook Boutique where they have this gorgeous mood board.

I was inspired by the greenish background as it reminds me of these paints.

I'm also linking up to the challenge at Seize the Birthday where I'm choosingt he anything goes option.


Lastly, since I've used scraps of black and white card for my layers, I'm linking to the snippets challenge at Pixie's Crafty Workshop. You only need 1 snippet to join in.

  4. Gosh Cathy, what a stunning card! Beautiful design and the butterflies are perfection! My guess is that the paints are similar to Twinkling H2Os - super for shimmery effects.
