I started by painting a piece of 600gsm watercolour card with gesso. I find Distress Crayons are far more workable over a gesso base.
Using a pink and grey Distress Crayon, I rubbed them randomly, adding water here and there, to allow the colour to move and run in places. I also flicked a little watered down black Distress Ink.
Next, I randomly stamped one of the images from the Decorative Edges stamp sets and a quote from the Words of Inspiration stamp set, using second generation stamping, to achive a softer look.
The butterflies were stamped from the Butterfly Flourish Swirls stamp set, and the two butterflies were stamped a second time and cut out before colouring with the same Distress Crayons, and decoupaged, with wire antennae and pearls added to the thorax.
