One More Background

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge to make my own background resonated with me!

I had a lot of fun with Inka Gold...a cool product made of beeswax that comes in beautiful colors and leaves a lovely smooth shine!  I wanted to experiment with all of the different ways that it could be used.  The background is three colors of Inka Gold spread with my finger and a little bit of water to blend. 

I watered down some pink Inka Gold and stamped the flourishes on the right and splattered on the background.

The hearts on the left is white texture paste mixed with Inka Gold.  The yellow butterfly is a wood element coated with yellow Inka Gold and dotted with thinned down Inka Gold.  The pink butterflies are vellum colored with Inka Gold. 

I rubbed more Inka Gold on the edge of the card base for another layer.  Buffing made it shine even more!

The shine of this card just makes me smile!

Thanks for taking a look!
