For the color challenge I had to use garden green as a sub for crushed cucumber and have all other colors.
I stamped the flower image in Versafine ink and stamped a second image and fussy cut a portion of it to use as a mask.
Stamped the honeycomb background twice; once horizontally, once vertically.
I stamped the diagonal bars twice in garden green, on the left and bottom of panel.
I watercolored the flower image, then created a halo effect around of flower in turquoise.
Using a wide flat paintbrush, I dry brushed the turquoise vertically on the entire panel, to create an aged/vintage appearance and then splattered daffodil delight for more vintage effect, then distressed the edges, adding daffodil delight around edges. I was inspired by Sabrina's use of this vintage technique.
Stamped and fussy cut the butterfly, folding up the wings for dimension, then added a chiffon bow, which I rarely use.

Oh, my! I love the vintage feel you created with the aging and distressing of your papers. The focal flower is gorgeous, especially with the turquoise halo behind it. Love all the background stamping and splattering and that pretty bow! Beautiful!
