I started off with texture paste through a small Tim Holtz stencil (alphabet), then when dry I set about building up layers of colour using Cosmic Shimmer sprays and Pebéo Dyna iridescent paint in blue and green. The door hinge, key and keyhole are alterations dies from Tim Holtz which were painted with a rusty look for a previous project but left unused so I painted over them to try to blend them in a bit better.
I also painted and stamped onto a chipboard tag, then stuck that down over some printed calico tape that was sprayed to change the colour. Paper flowers were sprayed with Cosmic Shimmers and stuck down over a distressed tag.
The frame was created by using UTEE in a silicone mold as was the gem in the centre. I was going to use resin but I was a bit too impatient (us crafter usually are lol) as it takes a few hours to set so thought i'd experiment with the UTEE to see how it would turn out. Really pleased with the result so i'll be using that technique again at some point!
The paper butterfly was cut from patterned backing papers from my stash and stuck stuck down over fusible fibres. I added a couple of decorative pins for the antenae.
Really pleased with the way this turned out despite the strength of the colour.
