Birthstone Challenge May to June

 Hello!  It's that time again for another challenge at Birthstone Challenge.  This challenge will run from May 1st to June 15th.  Birthstones are Emeralds and Pearls.  Your project can feature one or the other or both, but must be dominate in your project.  As always, it's anything goes.

So here's another installment in my art journal.  I really wanted aspired to make a flower from alcohol ink but I didn't quite get there.  So I scrapped the idea, pulled out some glittery alcohol ink card stock and made this....

I am totally in love with page.  My dominant color is the emerald color but it screamed that it needed some spots of teal to really bring out the ethereal emerald green.  I noticed that the only part of the card stock I used that was still glittery was where the ink didn't go.  Note - don't use pearlescent alcohol ink on glittery card stock.  It defeats the purpose of both.  But still - I love love LOVE this page.  I added some random stamping to the background.  The lacey piece is from die from Tonic Studios as well as the bee.  The butterfly is from Spellbinders.  I did add a touch of "pearls" using Dream Drops from Nuvo.  I also used some Crystal Drops on the bee.  The words were random stickers that I put together from Tim Holtz sticker book called Clippings sticker book.

Please join us at Birthstone Challenges.  Leave the team some love and again, thank you for visiting my blog.  Leave a comment so I know you were here.
