I Have Definitely Been Playing Today

Well I got up to rain this morning and decided to just spend the day in my craft room.  
How lucky am I!!!!
I had a couple of projects that needed to be completed and then I had a few other ideas banging around in my head.
I found a blog and some YouTube videos with some very cool Bister and Color Burst techniques, so today I started to play and I finished six new cards.  
WOW, I think that's a record for me.
The card I'm sharing today uses many various stamps to create a card front.  I had to do some masking, stamping and hand drawing to get this background completed.

Most of the background color was created using Bister Powders.  These products have more earth tone colors than the Color Burst, so I decided to use them for my background.
After laying the color down for the background, I made a focal point with the circle around the butterfly.
Now I needed to remove some of the color in specific places so I used bleach and a small paint brush to take color from the circle, buds on the tree, flower centers and a highlight area on the bird.
Using Distress pens I added some life back on the flower petals and the bird.
Lots of Glossy Accents, Signo White pen and Wink of Stella have been used to finish this card off.
This was something very different for me and I hope to make another piece soon.
Thanks for stopping by today and let me know what you think.
