I have to say it stumped me for a while, if I was going to be more imaginative than use the ornament punch for a vase, or something like that. But I was delighted with how this turned out, and it let me use up an piece of border that was on my desk and a background that I made some time back after reviving some Nuvo Mousse. I didn't think it would resuscitate again, so at the time I just kept on making backgrounds till I'd used it all up. I moistened it with distilled water, and added various colours of Brusho to it as I went along. I think this looks as if it had been stencilled, and then sponged.
My butterfly is made from - you can see what in the challenge post, where I'm attaching a stamped image. I added Liquid Pearls dots, also to frame the main panel. The body was die-cut from gold glitter card. I had to mirror one of the wings so that they matched.
Added a sentiment and called it done, and was very happy with how it turned out.
