Think Happy Thoughts

Hello there!
Hope all are enjoying the weekend!
Its another week and this is the last challenge of this month at ! And the theme is so amazing and fun "make your own background" which is hosted and sponsored by a very talented artist "Pallavi Iyer"!!! And here is my creation and my own fun background is based on embossing paste, embossing powders and my own stencil!

I made my own stencil using butterfly magic die and put it on my textured white card base and applied embossing paste and added silver pearl embossing powder on it, to give it more life and heat embossed it after 10 minutes to settled down! Isn't it looking gorgeous and I just love this shining and pearly background!

 For the embellishment, I die cut the butterfly 3 times and heat embossed them with my wow embossing powders, I just love them. And for the pink metallic shade, I added two colors which is listed below.   I added some snippets of strip along the edge for more dimension and heat embossed both the strips to match the panel. On a snippet of vellum I stamped the sentiment and blend the raspberry distress ink lightly at the backside of vellum. I scattered some enamel dots on my card to make it more beautiful!
Hope you like it!

Supplies used:
White textured cardstock; snippet of vellum
Wow embossing powders: Silver pearl, primary fuchsia fusion, magenta twinkle, primary ebony
Heidi swapp- September skies stamp set
Distress ink: Picked Raspberry
We R memory keepers Enamel shapes
Embossing paste-Studio 490
Spellbinder Shapeabilities-Butterfly magic

I would love to participate in the following challenges: old technique-own background by pink colors
