Mystical and Very Magical

My mind did wander off into the land of "Make Believe" with the newest challenge at Fashionable Stamping Challenges.  The stamps I used are from Stampin Up and are pretty old ones at that.  I remember bidding on these on eBay, because I thought they were so full of magic and imagination and just felt I had to have them!  Here is how this came together and I sure hope you will pull out whatever "Mystical and Magical" stamps you have and join in this fun challenge, where we get to be kids for a day!  Please stop by FSC, because I know you will want to see what my magical DT Sisters have created and don't forget there is always a prize!
I stamped my images on manila paper using Black Stazon and then colored the images using Stamping Up Markers.  Went over some of the colored areas with Spica Glitter Pens, which the little extra shimmer does show through.  After that dried, I covered all stamped and colored images with the VersaMark Pen and then clear embossed.  I wanted the extra little 3-D effect!  I also stamped some extra mushrooms and the bird, cut out and glued down.  I then colored a background stamp with Distress Inks (Antique Linen, Bundled Sage, Stormy Sky, Tumbled Glass), by rubbing the ink pads directly onto the stamp.  After that was done, I quickly used the blending tool to move some color, gave it a light spray of water and stamped over the images.  The back panel was freezer paper I used alcohol inks on some time back to use as a gift wrap!  So that was actually recycled and I cut a couple of mini butterflies to add.  The metal was embossed and tied down with some threads and then I added a mix of  chunky/fine glitter, seed beads and micro beads using Glossy Accents.
Thank you so much for stopping by and I sure hope to see you at FSC!  Have a great Sunday!

Hi Terry
I've really missed being part of FSC this time around.
Oh my word this is remarkable. It reminds me of a book illustration, the detail and colouring.
Wishes to you

First of all, I really like the card -- a lot of technique on there...very cool. Secondly, I didn't know you could use freezer paper in conjunction with AIs?! I SO have to try that. =) TFS, I hope you're doing well.
