ATC Card with 3D Crystal Lacquer

I had the privilege this past weekend to spend some time with some amazingly creative ladies at the Creative Souls Retreat in beautiful Lake Arrowhead, CA. One of the fun activities we did was an ATC Swap. The theme was transformation - and here is my spin on that theme.
Since I had to make multiples - I wanted something fairly simple, but I didn't want it to necessarily LOOK simple. After deciding on my design and image, I immediately reached for my 3D Crystal Lacquer and my 3D Crystal Lacquer Color

Here's the image I started with - printed on cardstock.

I love this photo. It really shows the sparkle you can create with a simple layer of 3D Crystal Lacquer and a sprinkle of glitter. Here I used an Ultra Fine Clear Glitter by Hero Arts. Any glitter will work perfectly.

I also used 3D Crystal Lacquer Color in blue to add dimension to the butterfly. After letting it dry overnight, I added the words "Let's DO this" using my underwood font and printed out on copy paper and a little green bling on the girl's wing!

Finished ATC's all ready to trade!

'Till next time - stay creative!
