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.
