Using what is laying there

I had die cut these butterflies on this layering weight white cs for another project where I used Distress Resist Spray. Now this piece had no purpose in mind, so I sprayed with Distress Oxide in Walnut Stain, then smooched color burst in blue. With the blue left over on the glass mat, I mopped up with another piece of white cs. This became the color behind the butterfly aperture. I used a stencil and gold acrylic paint on both pieces to add texture and shine. Layered on some Silhouette cut pieces and stamped sentiment on tag and popped that up with fun foam. Roses are hand cut then colored with ink and sponge dauber then rolled. Added a few sequins.

  4. Like the techniques you used on both your background and butterflies and the pop of the red roses brings it altogether. Thanks for sharing with us at Double Trouble.
