For this card, I used two pieces of Blue Fern Studios chipboard. The first is the center from the Graduated Circles set. I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink antique linen to color it. I wanted it to match the woodgrain color in the patterned paper I used. It looks like I left the chipboard raw but there was a slight color change when adding the ink. It turned out to be just the color I wanted. And for the Gabrielle Butterfly, I covered it in gesso first. Once it was dry, I added two layers of DazzelerZ dreamscicle. I let the first layer dry before adding the second layer since the butterfly is so delicate. It helped to build up the paint a bit by allowing it to dry between layers on this delicate piece. To see more information and close-up photos, please see my post here:

Love the use of the doily and the chipboard pieces. All the detail work with the stitching and flower cluster is beautiful.
