"Papillon"


  Grungy Monday has us using paint dabbers and perfect pearls. Go here to see how Tim did it. Over at Simon Says Stamp and Show it is all about flourishes. I used Tim's butterflies and moths stamp with white acrylic paint for my background. I used perfect pearls heirloom gold, blue patina and bronze. I used distress inks- vintage photo, faded jeans and antique linen.  I distressed the tag edges with walnut stain. I stamped the flourishes (Stampin Up)  and Papillon (Quietfire Design) with black Archival ink. I colored the butterfly with Perfect Medium and blue Patina Perfect Pearls. The bling was dyed with Adirondack black alcohol ink and h.gold  p.p.painted over it. The corners are TH ideology.

Thank you for looking!
