I had myself a marathon Minc session foiling everything I could lay my hands on. It sounds like an extravagant exageration but it's closer to the truth than you'd think!
Amongst the big boxes of shiny treasure I eneded up with was a rainbow of butterflies which were calling out to be used together. I took inspiration from the Lottie Loves Paper group on Facebook and an old layout by Marie - that is where the circular design came from.
I added some sewing (which got mostly covered up) and a lot of black and gold splatter. I mixed 3 colours of mica powder in to a few drops of Liquitex black ink. I'm seeing it as a failed experiment as the effect was minimal. I think maybe the black pigment was so strong that it overpowered the mica or I just didn't add enough. Anyway, if you look really close you may spot a tad of shimmer!
I added a few word stickers and some big black enamel dots and called it good. It's VERY shiny and that makes me happy!
