Mixed Media Butterfly

My final post for today is a creation for my daughter's scrapbook.  I wouldn't normally choose these colors but I wanted vibrant Distress Paints and these are the only colors I have! :) After applying the distress paints and lots of water, I let it dry, applied tissue tape and ink blending with distress inks. I used texture paste for the words and arrow, applied silver embossing powder. When it was dry I used my heat tool.  I stamped a second butterfly which I colored with DI and fussy cut.

I'll be entering this in HLS Mixed Media Challenge - WingsSimon Says Monday Challenge Butterfly Beauty and TCP Wings Challenge.

That's all from me and thanks for stopping by!
