Deco Butterfly Bling

Deco Butterfly Bling - Michelle Perkett has a new twist on her images. This one is Deco Birthday Lady. I love the flapper look of these images. Can't you just see her in the roarin 20's handing out this little gift?
I colored her with Copics' and added some Stickles to the butterfly in her hand, her hair and the big butterfly at her waist. I distressed the image with Antique linen distress ink and I roughed up the image, DP and the card stock to give it a more vintage look.

The lace has some pale pink beads sewn into it. It really glistens in real life. I also added 2 gemstone butterflies that I picked up at the Easter clearance last spring.

The DP is Fiskars. I didn't even realize that they made DP. I picked up a package that contained 25 sheets of the same paper at Big Lots. I use only about 3 sheets a year, so that all of my cards don't look the same and I also used this SP for one of my classes, which is why I am willing to buy such a large pack of the same paper. I fanned a strip of the DP to make the embellishment. The challenge this week at Michelle Perkett Studio is to use one of Michelle's images and to add bling. Come and join us there. If you don't have any of Michelle's images. You can get a Freebie at one of her groups.
