A Scrapbook Page

Happy Tuesday to you all....Last week I said that I was going to start my Hawaii vacation album, BUT I went ahead and did something that I have to do...My mom's birthday gift. She has been asking for some photo's of all of us for a long time, so I wanted to make her this page. I used a couple techniques here. Mono Die Technique from the Technique Junkies, and I also did some "foiling". I pretty sure that is what it is called. I stenciled the butterfly in the right corner with black Dreamweaver Embossing Paste, and after it dries, you put Versamark or any glue pad and pat it all over the image. You them lay this super thin metallicy foil on the top and let it dry. When dry, you carefully pull the foil away and you have left a beautiful shimmery effect. The butterfly is much more pretty in person, but at least you can see the shimmer.

I am entering this page in the Unity Stamp Company Simply Scrapbooking Challenge. You should check it out.
