I had started this piece of paper a while back when I was using a brayer with blue paints and used a scratch sheet of paper to clean it off. I had already stamped the leaves in silver over this. I added the script in Navy and spatter in Indigo. I added some caulk through dry wall mesh and chalk paints also through mesh and over the caulk. I tore my piece then wiped silver ink along the edges. My button is four layers of Pacific Point glued together then embossed in the Elegant Bouquet then rubbed Versamark over the raised areas and brushed on the PearlX. I wanted it a bit shiny, so I layered CE over this. I punched my holes with a Cropadile then wished I'd used something smaller as the holes were pretty large for my more delicate looking "button" so I used ribbon along with cord to thread through the button. I have a Whisper White base with a frame of Turquoise embossed in the lattice ef with Indigo sponged over it. I popped my panel angled over this. I think I'll go back and use a couple of dimensionals behind the button as it is floating more than I'd like. I didn't want to cover up my panel so I used a rubon sentiment.

I am in awe of your artsy endeavors! I love everything you've done, and appreciate that you've explained what that was, exactly. I especially like the button - I thought that you'd discovered an awesome vintage treasure :)
