The Colour Room #42

This week at TCR you were able to lift your fav DT artist and I chose Leeann Pearce as I love her funky designs and playful details. I lifted her use of layered strips and her cool string frames. I recently took these pics of some gorgeous blue butterflies in my garden and thought they would be perfect for this palette.

Used a mix of pp's with lots of punches and doily trim. The large butterfly is from a paper napkin. I misted and splattered glimmer mist & some blue metallic paint and hand made some rolled flowers, then finished off with some grungy machine stitching.
