New Challenge #99 at Glitter N Sparkle

Happy Birthday
to Me (lol).

Yes its been my Birthday this week 
though it was a very quiet affair.
Just me and the other half 
spending the day together.

Well life has been upside down for various 
reasons over the last few weeks,
but things are finally looking like getting back to 
normality now for us,
for which I am thankful.
A few changes which we both have to get use to
(like a new job for him),
but as I always say things could be a lot worse 
so we manage through them.

Anyway here is my project for this Week:-

The Theme at 
Glitter n Sparkle is:-
Use Some Butterflies

My project for this week is:-

Butterfly Belle Digi Stamp 
from Digistamps4Joy
(one of our sponsors)

To began with I used a Pre-cut Folded Squares 
White Card.

I then cut out two 10.5cm Squares and 
two 5cm Squares from White DC Paper.
Two 5cm Squares from Black Glitter Card
and three 5cm Squares from Grey Pearlised Card
(Ross Papers).
I Rounded all the Corners off 
using a 5mm Corner Punch

I then printed off the Image on 1 of the 10.5cm Square
White DC Paper,
and coloured it in 
using my Promarker Pens.

  Face/Skin -  Vanilla
Dusky Pink (Cheeks)
 Blossom (Lips)
Dusky Rose (Lips)
Hair - Cool Grey 4
Cool Grey 3
Cool Grey 2
Cool Grey 1
Flowers -  Black
Cool Grey 1
                 Butterfly -        Black
                                        Cool Grey 2

I then used a Silver Metallic Gel Pen
on the Blossom Leaves in her Hair,
and on the Butterfly

On the other 10.5cm Square I used the 
Butterfly Script Clear Stamp
with Tuxedo Black Ink
On the Butterflies I sponged on 
Light Grey and Dark Grey Ink
(Me-To-You - Colour Box)
and Silver Pigment Ink
before pressing the stamp.

On the 1st of the 5cm White Square
I printed off a Butterfly Sentiment, 
(I found it on the Internet
(but I couldn't find anyone to credit it to)).
which I then Coloured in the 
Whole Square using 
my Cool Grey 1 Pen.

On the 2nd 5cm White Square
I used a Clear Script Stamp
(loaned off a friend)

with Silver Pigment Ink.
and over the top 
I used a Clear 'Happy Birthday' Stamp
(free from Papercraft Inspirations)
in Tuxedo Black Ink.

On all of the White DC Paper Squares I 
distressed all around the edges
using Soot Black Distress Ink 
(Tom Holtz - Ranger)

I Die-Cut out Flowers
(LR0156 - Marianne Designs)
1 on White DC Paper and 
2 on Black Pearlised Paper
(Ross Papers)
And using Silver Glitter Card
I Die-Cut out 2 different Butterflies
(LR0113 and LR0114 
- Marianne Designs)

To finish my Card off I added
Holographic Silver Glitter
(Glitter Magic)
to the Flowers and the Butterfly 
on the Image.
And to the word Butterfly on the Sentiment.
Also I added to the centre of the Flowers
Clear Crystal 10mm Round Flatback
Dotted Rhinestone Gems.
