Created for the TMTA Challenge where the theme is buttons. The background was made using a scrap piece of card left from another project, and a piece of torn script paper. Over this the PaperWhimsy collage image was applied, then a small butterfly and the text. The edges were inked in Broken China Distress ink.

Next a piece of white lace was coloured with Glimmer Mist in Patina. This was attached, and small buttons added on top of it to embellish.

I have learned so much from reading the posts by artists. You just taught me that I can change the color of lace! Your background is gorgeous with the scrap of hand colored + scrap paper. Great job, Rachel.
