The title is a chipboard word by Maya Road that I painted with Tim Holtz Distress Crackle Paint in Antique Bronze. That wasn't quite crackle-y enough for me so I topped that off with some Ranger Crackle Accents. I did a lot of fussy-cutting of butterflies for this layout - I love the tiny butterflies from the DCWV paper!
The smaller flowers were each made from a single piece of ribbon using a U-gathering stitch. They were then wrapped around and stitched to the small cluster of flower stamens and the petals were also stitched together. Don't they look pretty on the Zva pearl swirl? These flowers were super-easy to make and can be made in 3-5 petal varieties and in a lot of different sizes depending on the width of ribbon you use.
That's all for today. Have a great Holiday weekend!
