possiblilty begins with imagination

Time for a new linky party to open at Make It Monday and we have the delightful Time For Tea Designs back as our sponsor. I love the image *Circus Hoop* they supplied me to create with. 
To create my project I altered my chipboard base with a coat of gesso, applied a piece of patterned cs and sprayed it with black magic by Tattered Angels and marbled black by Dylusions. Then I tore a sheet of ad paper by Bazzill into random pieces and glued each down with mod podge. A Faber-Castell Pitt Pen was used to shade and Liquitex crystal beads mixed with Adirondack gold acrylic paint adds some texture. Next I sprinkled MS's florentine gold micro beads over to add more dimension and color and to highlight I used various distress inks-black soot, vintage photo and tea dye. The digital image was colored with Copic markers and fussy cut out. Blooms from my stash, Tim Holtz philosophy tag and playing card, G45 metal butterfly and a wood Studio Calico butterfly complete the details. I'll set it on an easel and place it on my desk.
 Here are a few photo's...
I used a craft stick to apply the crystal beads,
no fancy tools necessary.

The blooms were highlighted with Twinkling H2O's. 
The metal butterfly was distressed
with Vintage Photo and a Spare Parts
vintage brad was placed in the center.
The wood butterfly received a coat of
acrylic paint and a script roller stamp was
used to add some detail to it.
Her card is gorgeous but there's more to it so visit her blog to see for yourself.
She has lovely eye candy on this card. :)
