Butterfly collage

Here's a butterfly collage:


  • Library catalog card used to mop-up additional Cracked Pistachio DOx from my mat from another project and set aside
  • Teresa Collins modeling paste applied though Tim Holtz's Plus stencil-- the modeling paste and Plus stencil were being used on another project and this card again got used to use up excess materials
  • A Fiskars text stamp added in Hickory Smoke from Ranger's Tim Holtz Mixed Media palette in spots
  • The scrap of vintage sheet music was on my desk top, so I ripped it to fit the card and adhered it with matte Mod Podge, then scribbled on it with Hickory Smoke Distress Crayon and wiped it
  • The butterfly was fussy-cut from some DP (the make is long-forgotten) and coated with Ranger Crackle Accents
  • The "500" was from an old library catalog index card, loosely glued on
  • Vintage hole reinforcer added
  • DI in Pumice Stone added around the edges and spritzed with water
  • Old buttons (with thread still attached) affixed with Glossy Accents
  • Vintage thread on a wooden spool sitting on my desk top was also added by just winding it around a bunch of times and tied in a knot right on the front.
I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
