Birthstone Challenge September - October

Hello! The newest challenge is up at Birthstone Challenges.  This next 6 weeks is the September-October challenge featuring Sapphires and Opals.

So Opals were a bit difficult for me, I wasn't quite sure how to incorporate so I went with Sapphire.  Easy!

I had a ball making this art journal page.  The base is cut from watercolor paper and I sprayed it using Nuvo Mica Mist in Moonlit Ocean.  I then used the Mandala maker stamp set from GinaK Designs and Tsukineko in Platinum Planet ink to do the stamping.  I also used 3 shades of Nuvo Drops - Platinum, Navy Blue and Midnight Blue.

In this photo, I'm showing the butterfly I made by die cutting from vellum and then coloring using Copic Markers.

And here is the sentiment.  The base piece I colored using the same Nuvo drops and marbling on the card stock.  After it dried for 48 hours, I die cut.  The other card stock I used is Ice Rink which is the closest I got to Opal.  When you move it around, you can kind of pick up pink hues like Opals.

I really enjoyed this process.  I hope to see you at Birthstone Challenges.
