I used a fun technique for the background. Gesso was smeared thickly with an old plastic card over a brick stencil. I used watercolour paper as a base since it is sturdy. After it dried I misted it with Wild Honey and Rusty Hinge reinker, mixed with water and Perfect Pearls. Then it was stamped roughly with a script stamp (almost looking like old fashioned graffiti on the stones). The two fringed flowers are made from tissue paper, one of the pieces was coloured with Tumbled Glass Distress Stain first. The butterfly was die cut three times from grungepaper, painted teal, stamped and white embossed with a swirl stamp, distressed a bit with white paint and finally covered in Rock Candy Stickles. The background cardstock was sanded a bit and then stamped with an envelope pattern.
