Skipping stone designs SSD111

Hi everyone! Welcome back for another Skipping Stones Designs Sketch Challenge! As soon as saw this weeks sketch I couldn't wait to try creating a scrapbook layout with it!

Supplies used: Skipping Stones Designs (Grunge & Healing Wings), Reminisce pattern paper, Stampendous glitter, Copics Memento ink, Versamark, Canvas Corp tags and pattern paper, Pink paislee alphabet stickers

I embossed the wood grain image in the Canvas Corp tags in white embossing powder. I LOVE this wood grain image. It adds the perfect bit of subtle detail to any project.

The butterflies were stamped in memento ink and then colored with comics. To give them some shimmer I applied adhesive to the entire image and covered them in crystal glitter. To create the antenna I simply adhered a folded piece if black thread to the backs of them.

Notice the flecks of blue on the photos? If you're friends with me on Facebook, you may remember me posting about a cleaning mishap. I sprayed my cutting mat with all purpose cleaner and accidently oversprayed everything beyond the mat...like my photos. Ooops! Wegmans Cleaner with Bleach actually has bleach in it, lol! It left bleach speckle marks on everything it hit. I reprinted the photos and continued on with the layout I was working on at the time, but couldn't bring myself to throw away the ruined photos. And I'm glad I didn't! They actually look kinda cool on this layout!
