Guest Spotlight with BozenA

Hey everyone, 

I have another card from BozenA today using my Water Effects stamps. I hope you enjoy :)

Some time ago I prepared few sheets of backgrounds using my Brushos. They produced several nice results and a few less cool panels. For this card I used one of the less cool panels. I was surprised that it turned out so well. No background is important without the other elements.

To begin embellishing the background I reached out for my unique stamps from Ryn. I used Hanging Droplet Set, Trickling Water 2 and  Trickling Water Set 2. I also used a stencil (STAMPlorations Flutterby Stencil) with Inka Gold colors: Gold and Steelblue. I had a great time blending! That's how the subtle pattern of a butterfly came about. It looks his shadow, kind of a spirit... To give him a little personality I glued moving mini eyes. At the end I darkened the edges with Distress inks: sapphire and black.

This card was created spur of the moment so I do not have photographs of it's creation process. I hope the above guidelines will suffice.
In this photo you can see that I used black pen to extend the effect of the Trickling Water designs (the dotted area in the original is shorter). I also added the highlights of each drop with a white Gelly Roll.
Hope you enjoyed my card!
