Come fly with me

I wanted to play along with a few challenges, but I've also been wanting to try some new techniques...
I found Studio l3 which is a challenge blog that goes along with Tim holtz
Compendium of curiosities II. And the prize is a wow gift card from Simon says
Their challenge ends very soon, and if you have the book (which I don't by the way 😁)
Then they are on page 53...
So last time I was at the hobby lobby I checked the book out...
It's a cool technique where you emboss onto black paper and the color in the image 
Using perfect pearls....
So here's the ATC I created
Lucky for me Wicked Wednesday atc has a new challenge butterflies
This week! Plus Flutterby wednesdays challenge is anything with wings
So I stamped using my denami design stamps, in clear, and then clear embossed over to make a resist
Then I colored in the butterflies with my perfect pearls... The book goes much more in depth so check that out! 
I Added a some words punched on my dymo 
Do you like??
It's definitely more shiny in person....

Entering this into:
Studio l3: Challenge 25
Wicked Wednesday ATC: Butterflies
Flutterby Wednesdays: 210 any winged creture
