Grungy 11 – butterflies


Hey check out my Grungy 11, from the challenges of Tim Holtz. I love the colors and really like this technique. I cut out butterflies and then glued them on top of the stamped image to add dimension and texture. I also added some perfect pearls to the butterflies!

I was asked what colors I used, I used many blues and browns. I used faded jeans, broken china, tumbled glass, and for the browns I used tea dye, brushed corduroy, and walnut stain. I love blue and brown together!!!
