The background panel was stamped on Flourishes Classic Ivory card stock in black. I stamped various sizes of the butterflies on all three colors of cardstock with Versafine Vintage Sepia ink and cut them out. They are all popped up on dimensional adhesives following the diagonal line in the patterned paper from Mediterranean Cafe by DCWV which I tore and applied over the script background. The entire back panel was sponged on the edges with VersaMagic chalk ink in Wheat.
All of the butterflies and the script background were sprayed with three different colors of Glimmer Mist: Chestnut Brown, Iridescent Gold, and Sugar Cookie. There’s a lovely sparkle and aging all over. I used a piece of lace and twine wrapped around it and finished with a button and leaf stick pin from Little Yellow Bicycle. This is really vivid and shimmery in real life!
