I began by cutting some fabric ( a free curtain sample) to fit my green square mat which I distressed.
I stamped a nestie shape and attached that and a nestie cut from a stamped torn and gessoed background sheet I had previously made.
I found some beautiful ribbons and distressed just about everything that didn't move.
The stamp is from Crafty Individuals, stamped on linen and coloured with Derwent Inktense pencils.
I made a parchment butterfly embellishment, with wire and an organza flower.
The flower is a silk carrier rod - if you haven't seen these check out Stef Francis.
