  Here's how I created my mixed media background:

  • Swipe a piece of mixed media paper with Antique Linen Distress Ink
  • Stamp the Shiplap Background over top in the same ink
  • Stamp the script stamp from Texture Tiles 1 in two corners and spot stamp in the center using Vintage Photo Distress Ink
  • Mixed together White Gesso and Antique Linen Distress Spray Stain, apply through the Floral Doily Stencil
  • Spray a bit of Gold Shimmer and Antique Linen Distress Spray Stain over top
  • Stamp the fern from Secret Garden in a few places using Vintage Photo Distress Ink

The moth was colored with Distress Inks and I added some highlights with my Arteza Real Brush Pens

So pretty, love the colors in this, the stenciling is so pretty for the background and like how you did the sentiment over the butterfly too, the buttons top it off nicely!
