Fluttering by

Hello, happy Friday.

Did you manage to see the eclipse?  Sadly, we had solid cloud cover until about lunchtime, which was a tad late, but still nice to see.

I have made a quick card to join in with the fun at Less is More.  This week is one layer week and ta-da I remembered!  I used perfect pearls to dust over my big and little butterflies, all Penny Black stamps, now I come to think of it.  I was then going to use a spotty stencil with some clear gel stencil paste but I couldn't get the lid off (so that's why they say to clean the lid every time) so I experimented with some glossy accents. Of course I had to remove the stencil immediately so the accents spread out and each dot seems to have a bubble in it, but I think that just coordinates with the holes in the sequins (sounds plausible, doesn't it?).

I tried to be arty with my photo but it was still cloudy so I'm sorry it's such a dark picture.
Here's another angle to try to show the gorgeous shimmer.

Hope you enjoy your weekend.
