The wet look....on acrylic

I am all about the instant. 

High-speed internet, drive-through coffee and microwaves. 

But there are a few things in this life that are worth waiting for. 

One of these things that I'm willing to wait for is Tsukinecko's Goosebumps.  Because of the nature of this product, it does not dry quickly on acyrlic because acrylic is a non-pourous surface.....but given a couple of hours....it's a beautiful thing.

On these butterflies from the Mini Butterfly Album, I first used Eggplant alcohol ink and then a quick spray of Goosebumps.  When they were dry, I used a heat gun to soften and curl up the edges of the butterflies' wings.  I love how the light reflects off all the glossy bumps from the Goosebumps.

  It makes the butterfly a beautiful central image for a card.
