Butterflies and leaves #111

Having a play with distress stains on this creation.  I started by swiping the background with broken china, wild honey and a little gathered twigs and then sprayed with water to help it blend.  I then used cut n dry with some orange tones to bright up some of the edges.

my next layer was to stamp with Tim Holts Royal Script in Salty Ocean and then the leaf in black (this is a Tim Holtz stamp too).    I then used some pale blue acrylic paint to fill in the flower to make it stand out from the background.

The butterflies were stamped next -they are a Crafty Individuals stamp and then the happiness border - which is a hero arts stamp.  Some white highlights on the butterfly and a black dash border finished the piece.

happy crafting
