I started by covering a 8x10" piece of paper with a script stamp but you could use anything.
Staz-On because in subsequent processes I am going to use wet products and I wanted the script to stay crisp. The next product that is instrumental for this was Gel Multi Medium. I prefer the matte finish but that is definitely a personal choice. I painted that onto a chunky stamp and stamped randomly all over the paper:
Tim Holtz Distress Inks using the blending tool. I've used Dusty Concord, Broken China and Tumbled Glass.
gel medium to coat a regular paper doily (found in the cake decorating sections of most craft and grocey stores) front and back. Once dry (it dries very quickly) it is waterproof and you can use it over and over not only as a mask but also to turn it over after spraying with Fireworks and stamp with the excess spray:
Check out the gorgeous masks that Lora is carrying!! I must have them all ; ) Next I used Glimmer Mist spray. I used Gold but so many colors would've worked.StazOn after cutting my paper down to 5 1/2 x 5 1/2. That's the size cards I most commonly make and I wanted the scrolls to be around the outside. Those blue scrolls you see are acutally on the paper towel that was under my cardstock.
Check out some of the new gorgeous shapes Lora is carrying from Spellbinders!! I added some simple outlining here and there with a white gel pen to really make the butterflies pop out.
