Mosaic Butterfly

Good Morning!  #12Tagsof2016! :)  Tim's April tag had me thinking of ideas over the weekend and I finished it up today.  This tag spawned so many pretty spare pieces I am going to have to think of other projects to share them on! 

 Tim's remix re-visited the mosaic technique and the paint resist techniques.   He used a bird die that I don't have so I went back to the butterfly die similar to his original tag.  I love this pretty Graphic 45 paper from the Enchanted Forest collection that I cut up the pieces to use for my mosaic.

I used embossing paste as my base on the chipboard butterfly. I pressed my scraps into the embossing paste.  After I finished I sprinkled the embossing paste with crystal glitter.  I then used glossy accents to highlight the paper on the butterfly. I finished with a zipper for the body.

The background is stamped using the Darkroom Door stamp inked up with acrylic paint. I then used a mix of distress ink sprays (vintage photo, ground expresso, pumice stone) over the surface to show off the resist.

Thanks for stopping by!
