Pearl Lady

"Pearl Lady"

This is just a quick card that I made for my aunty.  

The techniques in this are an attempt at marbled stains topped with shadow stamping. 
I think that the overall effect is really pretty...just right for my aunty.
The butterflies are edged with DI's and have rhinestones added...
and I have added interest to the swirls with a white pen, which I also used to add dots amongst the a starry effect.
Pearls and swirls are always a classic combination!


I am entering this card in the following challenges~
