I have to mention that the sun is shining today, we have not seen very much of it so far...... and we are well into Summer!!!
I used a cast-off that was in the 'craps' box!
Yes I do have quite a bit of detritus lying around, but it is all contained in one place!!!
I covered up the 'eyesore' with Masking Tape (the folds you can see) which I covered in Gesso, I used my heat gun to create some bubbles, then Perfect pearls powder, some pearls/bling, and mesh, and lastly the metal butterfly.
It turned out quite better than I imagined, and a wonderful backdrop to the Flower.
The first layer of Bg has had a watercolour wash then I used various stamps all over in fired brick.
My sentiment is from the 'Crafty Secrets' clear stamp set.
