Today is the final day of Hope You Can Cling To - it's been a fun month of challenges, chatter, and courage. I feel so blessed to be involved! This is my card for Lydia's challenge today - our main colors are to be black and white, and then there is a list of colors to choose from for a 'pop' of color. I chose green, and pulled out a little bottle of paint I hadn't used yet - it's a Lumiere Acrylic Paint called Metallic Olive... this is the little set I bought:
My stamping is done on a black 3" Art Square from Inchie Arts. I had started by stamping the butterfly wing (Rubbernecker) in white Memento Luxe ink and painting in highlights with white India ink.
When I started with the green paint, the results were really interesting... Where I painted over the white ink, the paint shows green, but where I painted over the black matboard surface, the metallic mica in the paint shows up copper.
The effect is really cool in person - I have been experimenting with different combinations on these squares, so this was an experiment and happy accident rolled into one. Love this sentiment so much too - it's from Unity but I love it paired up with the shimmery butterfly wing.
Thanks for visiting me today! Can you believe November is tomorrow?!!
