Summer Fun at MAWTT

Hello again!! Please scroll down to see my DT card for Charisma this week.
As promised I'm back again to share my DT card for

and this fortnight (we're still on a 2 week challenge for the summer holidays)our lovely Sue has picked the theme


Our sponsor this week is the fabulous
and the DT are showcasing some of Debbie's beautiful images.

I used the gorgeous Butterflies - available in both acrylic and digi format - I have the acrylic set and used them for my project which is based on the colours of Summer and of course flutterbys :o)
So here's what I did:

I created a background using Cosmic Shimmer Chalk Misters - I have had these for such a long time and not used them - so naughty!!!
I simply spritzed some cardstock with a few Summer colours and then blasted with a heat gun to dry.
I also then over spritzed with Irridescent Glitter Spray - I couldn't get this to show on the photos but IRL it has a fab sparkle all over :o)

I stamped the gorgeous flutterbys onto vellum using Versamark and heat embossed with Aurora Crystal EP - they are soooooo sparkilicous :o)
I embossed a piece of co-ordinating cardstock with a butterfly embossing folder and punched the edge with Martha Stewart Border Punch.
