Beautiful Butterfly with Nancy Wethington

 It was love at first sight 

when I saw this layered butterfly by Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts.

Four layers of goodness!

Because I wanted the colors to be "true"

and not altered by the chipboard,

I painted each layer with white gesso.

Once the gesso was dry

one layer stayed white,

one layer was painted with 

Special Effects Patina Paint

that has a bit of sand-like qualities to it,

one layer was painted with pink watercolor,

and the last layer was painted with gold acrylic.

I added a bottle with some beads inside

and a Tim Holtz Memo Pin

stuck into the cork top.

It was finished off with a gold "pearl" from

Prima Marketing.

A leftover piece of Prima butterfly paper from another project

was used on the card front.

Thanks for reading through this post.
