irRESISTible Butterfly

I was recently the blog subscriber winner over at Imagine Crafts blog  and won three bottles of a wonderful product called irRESISTible Pico Embelllisher!  Whoa!  What a wonderful surprise when I was sent a bottle of New Sprout (green), Desert Sand (brown), and Danube Blue.  After checking on how to use it at their blog I found that was not only easy, but so much fun to use!  It's almost like a glossy accent but in color - and they have so many wonderful colors to choose from.  They have a teeny tiny little spout where you can use it just about any place on your card - from full coverage to outlining!

For my card I splatted some yellow and green on the white, popped up a piece of patterned paper that was from a Simon Says Stamp kit, and die cut the leaves from a SU die.  The butterfly (from SU called Flores Suaves) was stamped, cut out, and then that fabulous green Pico Embellisher added.  It truly shines!  The sentiment is from TAWS.

Thanks to all at Imagine Crafts and if you get a chance check out their store, Imagine Crafts (featuring Tsukinedo products) and blog to see some sensational things!

Thanks for stopping by..........

Oooooh, You wanna talk enabling, do you? Now really! Firstly, WTG at your prize win. You've done some great splats here (which are much harder to get right than it looks to be!). You made a lovely pattern on this background. Love the wood dp, and that beautiful green butterfly is just a big WOW! It really glistens. Now I'm gonna have to check those things are. Are these by the Tsukineko company that makes Memento? TFS & Hugs. Happy Mom's Day.
