Altered Eclectics: Butterfly Tag Art Board

Hello!
 
As another new month begins so does another challenge over on the Altered Eclectics challenge blog.  It is always fab seeing your creations and it would be great to see as many entries as possible this month once again.  The theme is always anything goes with altered art and mixed media but no cards or ATC's please.  If you would like to enter, look at the design team inspiration or check out the rules then you can click HERE to go to the challenge blog.
 
This month I have altered an MDF tag art board using a variety of mixed media products...
 



The board is from Bee Crafty and after preparing it with white gesso I added crackle paste with a palette knife then after it had dried used Lindy's sprays to colour it.  Next some stencilling was added with silver paint and then some background stamping using archival inks...


For extra texture some more stencilling was added using sparkle paste.  A variety of flowers and embellishments were added using glue gel and then I stamped some butterflies from the For the Love of Stamps set 'Spread your Wings', colouring them with aqua markers and cutting them out.  The sentiment was also stamped from the same set...


Final touches were some gilding wax and a silver ribbon.  Thank you reading and I hope you will pop over to the challenge blog for a look.

Happy crafting,

Jane xx
