garden sprite


It's been far too long since I made a gothic arch. I picked up a ton of mulberry paper this week in my treasure hunting and used that for the base. I added some distress ink, perfect pearls, and stamping on the background. The little clear butterfly is cuttlebug embossed, alcohol inked, and stickled. That garden sprite in the middle was a silver pin I picked up in the same treasure hunting trip. I put a little copper mixative on her. I'd like to think somebody like her lives in the garden. Thanks for stopping by.
