Coloring with Crystal Lacquer Pearl and Metallic Pens

Hi! Today I would like to show you how I used Metallic &
Pearl Crystal Lacquer to create an embellishment and main focal image for a card.

List of supplies used today are:
Image Stamp to color
StazOn Ink
3D Metallic & Pearl Crystal Lacquer
Card Base
Card stock
Patterned Paper
Sentiment Stamp

I started with a piece of acetate (packaging) and
 stamped a butterfly to color with my metallic/pearl pens.
I chose to use a complimentary color of permanent
StazOn Ink. I chose StazOn Ink so it wouldn't smudge.

Next I turned my image over to color it.
I used each color in the set. When it was dry I turned my image back over to
reveal the lines of my image with my vibrant pearlized colors visible.
Then cut out the image leaving approx. a 1/8" edge around the stamped image

I layered my card stock and patterned paper on my card base.
I used pop dots to adhere my butterfly in the center small enough not to show through.
I added the rest of my embellishments and stamped my sentiment at the bottom.
The inside of the card has a lovely Serenity Poem.

 Here is a close up of the butterfly. (hard to capture on camera)
