Girls Prerogative

Hello.  Welcome.  This started as something and metamorphosed into something very different.  Quite appropriate considering the butterflies.  

I started with a kraft panel, white embossed Hero Arts Word Pops background stamp and added some Brusho colour.  

I added a brown Cheery Lynn English Tea Party doily, toned it down with some gesso and then spritzed with gold shimmer spray.  

I dyed the string with Distress Vintage Photo ink.  The butterflies are the large butterfly from Hero Arts/Sizzix Collage Background stamp.  I stamped on paper I had coloured with watercolours and fussy cut.  I added some wire for antennas and the sentiment is from Hero Arts/Sizzix Bicycle set. I wanted a bright background card, but the raspberry was a bit bright, so I smeared on some Distress Walnut Stain.
