First I applied clear VersaMark watermark through the stencil and heat embossed in two colors: the gorgeous Fran-tàge Aged Black (jet black with gold flecks) & Fran-tàge Shabby Blue (baby blue with gold flecks)! The Shabby Blue was hard to see, so I outlined them with an extra fine point black Sharpie.
The design then fell into place. The black laced corset piece is from a shirt that Brianne had. I 'shabbied' it by pulling & ripping the bottom lace. I followed the great advice she had to tone down the starkness of the rich black. I added Finnabair Gold Rush Glass Glitter!
I used lots of Dusty Attic chippies. The butterflies are among my most fave! I heat embossed them with Lindy's Stamp Gang Candy Cane Red Gold and decorated the body & wings with some gold glitter glue. Here is the large butterfly next to the beautiful Wild Orchid Crafts roses. I rubbed gold wax on the red roses.
