My First Design Team Project for ReneaBouquets

I am honored to be on ReneaBouquets Design Team!
Renea has Gorgeous Butterflies and Dragonflies that she designs and handcrafts with meticulous detail.
You will Love her Butterflies and Dragonflies!
 I started out with corrugated paper from DCWV,  cut it down to 12x9.  Then I used my decorative scissors along the edges to give it a distressed look. 
 I applied Tim Holtz Distress paint~Antique Linen in various places along the edges then I applied 3D Stempel Farbe~Lime-Green Metallic in random places.
I used Crafter's workshop chicken wire stencil,  the Mini Art stencil and Tim Holtz Doily Stencil,  applied embossing paste in random places on the paper.
Then I sprayed with Heidi Swap's Color Shine and Glimmer Mists until I was happy with the look.
 I made some paper flowers using my Cricut machine and then sprayed them with some of Heidi Swap's Color Shine and then for the stamen I used my Spellbinders dies.  I used some gorgeous beads for the center.
 Here is Renea's Gorgeous Tiffany Glass Glitter Butterfly it comes in a pack of 3.
I used floral metal embellishments for more texture and dimension.
